    This is exactly what I thought a decade ago - 'oh wow, this is cool - shelve i
    until its useable'... I install every year or two, until I write it off as nev
    gonna happen - but hmmmm, I better go install it and see if its any better in
    o23...

    I think that ReactOS may be like several others... it is someone's hobby
    and, as such, it likely to take a lot of time and may never get anywhere.

    I do feel like ReactOS development has been very slow. I first heard about ReactOS around 2006, and at the time, I heard ReactOS had started in the mid-90s, after Windows 95 was released (I think). So even then I was surprised they hadn't managed to release a stable feature-complete version yet. Even now, the current version is 0.4.14 - If their verison numbers mean anything, that still seems to imply an early version that isn't feature-complete or stable yet.

    That is when I became aware of it, the late 1990's.
