Open Source Windows Clone Coming Soon?
It is quite unlikely that any of us will ever see an open source version of Microsoft Windows in our lifetimes.
Or is it?
Though such an effort is not forthcoming from Redmond, the ReactOS open source project has been trying to come up with an open source "clone" of Windows for 10 years.
With the new 0.3 ReactOS release, the group is now closer than ever before.
The 0.3 release is a major milestone for the ReactOS project because it is the first to include basic networking functionality, such as allowing a user to download and use Firefox to browse the Web.
