ReactOS, Anyone ever hear of it? It's supposed to be to windows what linux is to unix. On the up side it may provide a more user friendly open source alternative to windows... one that has binary compatibility to a greater extent then can be achieved through wine. On the down side now there are two operating systems vulnerable to windows virii. It'd be nice to see something come out of this... something with fewer vulnerabilities and greater interoperability with other operating systems... but I'll keep my linux even if it does take off.
  • oh damn, I just looked down the page. Oh well... sorry for the repost.
  • hmmmn I've tried the recent releases but theres very little driver support and is a bit buggy, i'll wait till it gets more developed....
  • i hear about it, but never used.
    linux really has a fewer vulnerabilities than widozze but may be it`s just `cause it not so widlly used and it`s an open source???
    newertheless, your linux box is vulnerable to Virus.Multi.Etapux or Virus.Multi.Pelf or Virus.Multi.Bi :) which are multiplatform virii, and other linux specific viruses.
    as long as coders will be making mistakes in their programs, regardless of os and platform, and on other hand people will write wirii for particular purpose or without it, nothing woud changes, i think.
  • I think it's a fantastic idea. Microsoft will try to snuff them out as soon as a stable release is available, but I'm rooting for the ReactOS guys.

    Once ReactOS is stable, I might finally be able to lure a few of my friends away from Microsoft.
