It is interesting, that I have to read webpages other then the ReactOS one, to hear about the big steps of ReactOS.

the Pierre Schweitzer wrote on his Twitter account

that ReactOS can now be compiled on ReactOS itself.
And the wiki was updated for this

ReactOS no longer needs Windows! A milestone!

Well, if that is true and I don't doubt it is, it is a milestone and it should be celebrated!

I am also surprised that it isn't being shouted louder on all the ReactOS web media itself. A self-hosting compiler would be a major achievement for any compiler-writing team and it should be an equally important occasion for an o/s to be able to run all the tools required to build itself!

To complete that, IDEs programs like ZinjaI, Dev C++, Lazarus,... must be runed well on ReactOS. Programming in C/C++ in ReactOS is the next step.
ZinjaI seems to be almost ready but more work is needed to get it full functional under ReactOS.

PSPad already works on ReactOS and it has capabilities to call several compilers depending on file type
