Someone posted *this* thread on IRC, so blame him!

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

A little Slashdot necromancy revealed this uk.builder.com article from 2005. That article by Ingrid Mason summarizes the patent's effects on Wine development.
