Freedows OS

Post by Rosh »

It seems that ReactOS is not the only effort to do a Windows-like OS...
Acording to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microso ... mentations
there was " Freedows OS" :
Freedows OS – an open-source attempt at creating a Windows clone for x86 platforms, intended to be released under the GNU General Public License. Started in 1996, by Reece K. Sellin, the project was never completed, getting only to the stage of design discussions which featured a number of novel concepts until it was suspended in 2002.

Maybe Reece K. Sellin and Freedows OS team could join to ReactOS project.

ReactOS is the only Windows-like OS that will success.

Rosh, before you again rush to post about some thing you found please research it first. Sometimes what looks like gold is only iron pyrite.

The Freedows project fell apart in 1998, 20 years ago.
