Sorry to barge onto the list with what may be an offtopic post, but I am 
very curious about how married ReactOS is to little-endianness.  Is 
there something intrinsic about how Windows is architected that would 
prevent ReactOS from being ported to a big-endian platform?  I noticed 
that the inital work on the PPC port was done with the CPU in 
little-endian mode.  Was this for convenience or was this a technical 

Definitely not an important topic but if someone could satisfy my 
curiousity, I'd be grateful.
