Ask the FSF, it's their list.

Considering that it wasn't just the FSF that was displeased with the Xfree86 license, causing a massive fork to the X.org project, I'm thinking there were some fundamental objections by a lot of people.

The Xorg fork happened because of a license change in Xfree (even before that, some people were completely unhappy with Xfree development process)

Xfree is dead btw, like SCO. Just a slow, horribly slow death ;)

Great chart btw!

*spits on XFree86's 3-year-dead body*

O wait? It's still alive?

Wha? Xfree is still known to people as an Xserver? LoL. The only reason to use it is in the massively potent "DirectFB" in its Xserver, and even at that, its not really desirable to use any part of its code base.

What about Secret maryo chronicles?
It is under GPL3 ,written in C++ ( i believe)
and it uses SDL.
It is compiled for Win.

It fails the "Windows has it" test.

Yes, but i think, it is much better(more interesting, especially easier to learn) than all these card games windoof has.
You could let it run windowed by default, then it is like the other Minigames.
That could be another advantage against windoof.
I think, it fits in the category "better counterpart as win". :)

No response generally means "no" and we don't buy your argument.

It's been mentioned before. It's written in Delphi and does not look anything like Explorer shell.

Browsers:
I thought about xml engine and browsers.
There are a small browsers
available (GPL) that need some work because BSD/linux API.
I think that only a small browser could be useful.It could
be run in an explorer MDI panel, and be smaller than IE
because it is not inegrated with explorer ,only borrowing a view window.

XML:
I would like to recompile rbuild and the explorer with a smaller
xml engine,I think that the used expat is a very good parser,
but there are not many reactos parts needing it.
