my guess: in 2020 Reactos is 98% Windows compatible and usable for daily use and millions of users will use it - wordwide !

Microsoft ist on the Nokia-Way...

But big companies will wait longer, and join about 2025...

Updated.

Please do not post off-topic. Since 0.3.16 we don't have any changelog except fixed issues, I prepared this for an official changelog!

Yes, by looking every commit and noting the most important ones. Also, I'm careful about the fix version.
