      I like that idea! Maybe with Windows XP and 10 added for a historical comparison.

        Bah .. if they want to be compatible with Microsoft they should be using the clang-cl.

          ReactOS also supports building with Visual Studio, which is about as compatible-with-Microsoft as you can get.

            I find this project really fascinating. Albeit not using it. Has someone encountered a situation where wine was not working but ReactOS?

                Is there anyone in some remote corner of the world who uses this distribution?

                  It's not a distribution of Linux if that's what you're implying.
                  And no, not really.

                    I remember reading a story where someone rolled out ReactOS to replace Windows XP in a kiosk system. I don't understand why you'd want to do that however, maybe there is unique hardware which requires special drivers which somehow work on ReactOS.
