    ReactOS is a really great project on paper that is sadly immensely understaffed and underfunded.

      Reactos would be ideal for supporting legacy server apps that generally run on NT 4 or Win2K Server, which have been EOL'd by MS a long time ago.

        ...what? Linux can run windows programs better than reactOS. It can run more windows programs than reactOS. It has more windows-like features than reactOS. Not sure how you think I'm hallucinating when the facts are right in front of us.

          If that's the point, Mac OS can run exactly the same Windows' programs.

            They build it to prove what they are capable of, in order for microsoft to hire them. Nothing else!

            Thats a job of WINE.

It looked to be focused on the Russian regions, but if it picks up there, it could see more development and actually possibly become something of use. Supporting old apps etc.
            Incorrect, Russia has Ethersoft.

            Windows XP sucks though, Windows 7 and Windows 8 is much better (some things suck in Windows 8 though), but the upcoming Windows 8.1 is looking promising.
            I see you still have place for being bullshitted. Well, happy burning!

              Or, to get similar or improved performance with similar features/interfaces and with a more efficient or better designed system...and while their at it, learn how to create a functioning and coherent OS. Of course it's not fully functioning or coherent yet; that's what makes it a good learning tool.

              Yes, they could work on Linux (distributions), or some other commonly used OS's, but that wouldn't necessarily help them in learning all the things they might learn in developing ReactOS.

              Mind naming some individuals who got a job at Microsoft as a result of working on ReactOS? I would be interested in such a list.

                To be fair, no current Linux distro has really emulated the Windows UI to the level of drop in replacement.
                The closest that comes to mind would be Linux Mint or Lindows, however the former still has some very noticeable differences that might confuse users if a drop in replacement occurred, and Lindows sadly isn't supported any more.

                  You probably havent seen Zorin yet :P :



                  It looks almost like a skinned Windows Vista.

                      Because that's what those people want to work on. They have different goals to Linux, goals that not even your low-jitter kernel can satisfy

                        Yes, it could be it, likewise one isn't not going to expect anything of quality in this case, and they are very dependent and vulnerable from ms, which is known to take very aggressive and shameless decisions.

                        Sadly, I can't name anyone, one is going to do own research; but likewise I am not limiting your view on subject to only my vision.

                        Lindows was a money-ripoff joke, Linux Mint isn't going to "replace windows", they are up to producing comfortable desktop OS, so this is better.
                        If one tries to strongly imitate UI (where no sense lies), he is going to be sued.. So, there is zero point.

                        No, Etersoft is company that sells wine business solutions and integrations.

                          No, it looks exactly like skinned KDE.

                          Unforunately a lot of people donīt have the level to understand the benefits of low-jitter, but it makes Doom 3,(jitter sensitive game, 3 passes to opengl pr frame) run on 5 year old hardware, completely smooth, something that requires a modern E5 with low-jitter h/w WITH a tweaked windows XP, for the same. That is a 5 year advantage on linux. That is quite an amount in the computing world. And I doubt the MS philosophy that hinders progress will ever change.

                          And I doubt any other system will be considered any relevant competitor, as it is so advanced now.

                          The only think Iīd personally want, is a more mainstream licence, that is without the obscurities of GPL. http://paradoxuncreated.com/Blog/wordpress/?p=6198

                          Unfortunately same could be said about you, judged by your "fight" with ninez.

                          Also, its a lot of "religion" and "believe" in your claims, so its no wonder. A good benchmark empirically demonstrating advantages could be useful.

                          And finally your license is plain BSD + God reference. Until we (or you) create "Telephone to God", that part is highly subjective and irrelevant. BSD is very obscure when seen from GPL hill as well, but at least only GPL warrants true freedom for software.

                            If I read you correctly, it makes a nine years old game run in five years old hardware. Not impressed.

                                You are some of the dumbest forum-monkeys I have ever seen. There is plenty of people like you who hang around places like this, and make inane comments. Obviously crazy, obviously ignorant. That is the only impression you are making to sane people. Now go and hide away on your gay club, obviously that is what you need to do, when you go out somewhere.
                                Why that agresivity? I only said I'm not impressed with the example given. Didn't say anything else. I'd understand if you said something else about why is low jitter and stuff, but you only said yours is better because 'example'. Well, example sounds pretty much what anyone would expect, which is a game running smoothly in hardware newer than the game. If you can mention anything that technically makes it better, I'd probably understand that, and I may be impressed by that.

                                Also, about crazy nutters, your reply is more like that. I read it and I imagine Frank Costanza fliping tables and screaming.

                                And for the one that told ReactOS tries to solve something none low jitter Linux will solve, is true. It's apples and oranges there, ReactOS is not about performance or jitter, is about compatibility with Windows (full compatibility is aimed, while WINE only provides user land level compatibility), so the problem it tries to solve (running Windows' software without porting it) is not solved by ANY LINUX.
