POSIX Subsystem

Post by andrewweb » Thu May 24, 2012 12:25 am

I eventually want to be able to use ReactOS as my full-time OS. Then I'd have Windows apps without paying for Windows, and with the freedom of the GPL. But something else I'd like is for the POSIX subsystem to be implemented properly. Then, I can get the best of both worlds: Windows applications and a real Desktop OS, and the familiar UNIX utilities.

Eventually (by the end of the century, assuming our species and technology are still around) ReactOS will have a POSIX subsystem.

Until then, the feature is already requested and a very low priority - unless someone volunteers to make it, it will likely be a post-1.0 project.
