Limiting things to 2003 might work, with the exception of DirectX, 
hardware drivers and silly stuff like UEFI and GPT
[ http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/gg463525.aspx ].

In other words you'll get in trouble as people want to test ReactOS 
against their own (modern) hardware system (due to drivers focusing on 
Vista/7/8), and see if ReactOS can run their games.

Nonetheless, good thing you lot are able to make up your mind and 
sticking to a argumented majority decision.

thanks for the minutes.
