Is It possible to remove WINE support?

Post by anon746874642 » Fri Sep 20, 2013 5:06 am

I am thinking if it will be possible to remove WINE support in the future so that reactos will be independent . Is it possible to remove WINE support in the future?

What would be the point in doing so? WINE provides a biiig amound of well written libraries we would have to write by ourselves otherwise. Its the most useful source we use and no, its impossible if we dont get about 20 new devs to do the work WINE already does.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

You could gain "independence", but it would be the sort of independence that North Korea enjoys...
