ReactOS - The Open Source Windows NT
Kelly McNeill writes "Despite the rapid growth of alternatives to Windows, there is a considerable number that have tried the alternatives, still prefer Windows but are frustrated with some of Microsoft's policies. There are many good concepts throughout the NT kernel, but there is a great deal of it that is flawed or leaves much to be desired. Unfortunately, without access to the source code, none of us can fix it. Enter ReactOS. This operating system is a young but rapidly growing open source clone of Windows NT. Wesley Parish contributed the following editorial to osOpinion/osViews, which analyses the benefits and drawbacks of the operating system."
