    Phoronix: ReactOS 0.4.11 "Open-Source Windows" Available With Big Kernel Improvements

    ReactOS 0.4.11 is now available as the newest version of this open-source operating system re-implementing the Windows APIs with a focus on binary driver/application compatibility. With this being the first release since November's ReactOS 0.4.10, there are a fair amount of changes to find in this new build...

          I like the potential for ReactOS, I've been dabbling with Win95/98 recently and found some memory wrappers that allow old dos games to run in Windows 98se. Should be possible to do similar memory wrapping in ReactOS giving us an NT that's more compatible with DOS apps than XP/7/10 is. DOSBOX is not a good solution for a lot of use cases due to poor performance.

              So, flat design (often employed) is "fancy"? To be honest bezels look " fancier" than flat design...
