Reactos outdated ?

Post by vorador »

hello !

i'm french , please excuse me for my poor english. :oops:

do you think reactos will soon become outdated , because it try to be compatible with microsoft windows nt , but windows nt is now not supported by microsoft.

Does ReactOS become an old-fashionned O.S before supporting fully the win32 api ?

With Windows NT we mean the NT architecture (kernel, etc), and not Windows NT 4. Windows XP and Longhorn are also NT architecture, and those are Microsoft's main flagship products! Does that clear it up for you ? :)

Believe me it's not silly to ask questions. Here's a forum for asking questions.

P.S. When I found ReactOS on Internet I had the same question. :wink:

...And even if MS did come out with some magical new system, an open source OS based on NT seems very cool to me!
