OSNews, Generic OSes

My thoughts tend to go to dark places these days. And so when I watched Google on Wednesday trot out one after another of its homegrown computing devices for every task and every nook of our homes, I went straight to dystopia: R.I.P. digital competition.

Nothing to add.

Why reactOS? Are they even close to being compatible with what ever their current target is?

Why not true FOSS from the ground up, ala Debian Linux ? Why pay to have a worse, less compatible version of windows?

True FOSS? Now that's an insult for everyone but die-hard GNU fanatics!

And why not ReactOS (notice capitalization)? It is a _true_ open source operating system no matter if it is compatible with whatever. If you don't realize that maybe you should simply STFU?

Linux started the same way as ReactOS, it was supposed to be a Unix like operating system, just like the BSDs are also Unix like, or Haiku is BeOS like. There is no OS "True FOSS from the ground up", at least not like i think you mean.
