Happy 17th of May to our Norwegian readers, but if you're not busy today or not one of them, you may want to fire up ReactOS 0.4.1 as the latest version of this open-source project re-implementing Windows.

As we've been expecting, ReactOS 0.4.1 is now available as the first update over ReactOS 0.4 that was released back in February. ReactOS 0.4.1 has a fix for activation contexts, read/write Btrfs support, usability improvements to the shell, various USB fixes, support for shared folders with virtual machines like VirtualBox and VMWare Player, and various other fixes.
