Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 12 November 2013 at 10:38 AM EST. 27 Comments
ReactOS, the open-source experimental operating system that aims for binary compatibility with software and drivers for Microsoft Windows, is still under heavy development since the project began in the late 90's. One of the long-time developers along the way with ReactOS has been Alex Ionescu and he's shared a status update and demo of the operating system.

The last time ReactOS was covered on Phoronix was back in May with ReactOS 0.3.15, which was their first release to bring initial support for USB keyboards/mice/storage. But for those wishing to learn more about the hopeful Windows replacement open-source operating system, Alex Ionescu of ReactOS uploaded a 1 hour 20 minute video presentation on the project's accomplishments, state, and demo of the OS.
