The one thing that distinguishes ReactOS from other open source operating
systems is its application support. There is no other open source OS with
the number of applications available (potentially :-)) as ReactOS. Take out
Win32 and what you're left with is an OS which can only run native apps,
bringing it down (in terms of application support) to the realms of BeOS and
I have no problems with a reorganization which would make Win32 a separate
entity in the repository, but I do feel rather strongly that the default
build (and install) should include Win32. I'm not sure I like the idea of
moving it to /trunk level. I thought beginning this year concensus was
reached on http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/New_Tree_Structure ?
