    As hardware and Windows evolve faster than they can achieve work this project will never end... unless a miraculous amount of money found it.

    Well for emulation without XP license i could be great once, but for now is only prototype and maybe 1% of apps working, so not big deal.

    I am not using ReactOS, so I probably misunderstand: But their announcement says that SATA was introduced with 0.3.10 in 2009. The 0.4.0 announcement just lists all changes from 0.3.0 which was published 10 years ago.

    I believe the React team actually tried to get funding at some point from the Russian government who put out some funding for a series of official OS' only recently (last couple of years).

    ​SATA support as a new feature in 2016 is beyond pathetic. Seriously, *all* our company computers are running on M.2/NVMe. Same goes for my home PC. By 2020 they *might* get full XP win32 compatibility, but don't hold your breath lol.
    It's a volunteer project with no big money funding development. If you don't like it, don't use it. Don't insult the people working on it.

    Not necessarily. I've recently seen a linux box using WINE to run an XP era property program that W7 failed to run. As Microsoft closes off the PC, and W7 EOL (2020) draws near, there might be some interest in maintaining ReactOS by some parties. Especially if they can get an ARM port going where Microsoft failed to do so.

    Now I'm sad.
    Sounds like an astonishingly authentic Windowstm eXPeriencetm to me! Had you just installed a set of Via drivers you'd spent the previous three days running the gauntlet of every malware site known to man to find? Or plugged in a webcam?..

    Wait until 2022. That's when they'll have full HDMI support.
