I agree with what's been said by Alex, and Brian. Hartmut, all this
little spat has done has been to shove yet -more- negativity on the
project. When a problem like this occurs, you don't turn tail and just
run off, expecting it to be solved in your absence. Instead, you stick
around, and improve things for the better. In fact, I'd liken your
outburst to a tantrum, and I personally think it has done the project
more harm than good, especially considering this ML is public.
Fact is, ReactOS aims to duplicate the functionality of Windows. In
doing so, I believe it is expected that a certain amount of things
cannot be done a different way than to how Microsoft has implemented
them. Open up Linux, and I'm sure you'll see LOTS of pieces of code
that strikingly resemble UNIX.
