"I've been writing about the ReactOS for at least five years
(the project itself is more than 10 years old). It's an effort to
try and replicate a Windows operating system in open source.
"Originally it was all about getting a WindowsNT implementation
-- which they never quite achieved -- then it morphed to support
Windows Server 2003. Again not quite ever really achieving a fully
usable status. So instead of keeping up the same old/same old
approach that to date hasn't quite achieved all of its goals -
ReactOS is now set to take a different path."
