But ReactOS is not a hybrid, it's just rewirte.

IMO we should just call it React and nothing silly like what he was suggesting because its not a hybrid system its just uses a part of wines code.

All the big OS players don't have OS in the name...
Windows, Ubuntu, Redhat, Arch

Though a few do...
MacOS, Chromium OS

It shouldn't mater if it has "OS" in it or not. It can give people outside the community an idea of what it is by adding OS in it but it won't make a big difference without OS.

Why a new thread? This looks like a name for ARWINNS, there is a thread for that.
Also, I don't like it, can't see any sense.

What would Windows be without OS in their name?

It would be called Windw! :-)

But I never thought of the OS in Reactos as separate. I thought re-ac-toes was the proper pronunciation. Besides, the OS can mean more than "operating system." It could mean "Open Source" too. The React part fits. I read some of the history. It wasn't that anyone really hated Windows. It was just that they didn't like specific traits or the licensing scheme. In a sense, they got mad, or reacted, and started to write a Windows compatible OS. The previous attempt (Free95 I assume) was fizzling and became obsolete before they could finish it. I guess a lot of the original core group left. So whoever was left decided to try to clone NT. That has evolved to mean XP and Server 2003. In time Vista/7/8 compatibility might be needed, but hopefully by then, we will have a good skeleton formed from mature code, a decent shim engine, and our 64-bit port will be working well enough to adapt its code. It would be nice if we could not only support the total 64-bit porting, but without total breakage as Microsoft plans.

I also agree that this thread sounds a bit like the ARWINNS thread.

It is a wonder nobody created an OS called WINO or WINOS yet. Have a nice graphic on the box or on a theme of an alcoholic or a bum. If there is WINE, then there are eventually going to be WINOS, right? Like winos on the street corner, we would gladly accept a little help getting our fix of a WINE-based OS. :-)

How about we name it WindOS? It resembles windows, speed and lightweightness of the wind, which is what reactos really is. It even resembles wine a bit! Frankly, I think this is the best idea I've had in my whole life! :D

A couple of possible ROS mutations:


1. ROS Core + Firefox + Flash + Ajax = Bootable Webbrowser / WebOS

2. ROS Core + JAVA/JME + OpenGL ES = x86-Android/Symbian compatible OS
