This page contains a list of APIs, COM interfaces, drivers, application, extensions or other functionality that Windows has but ReactOS does not. There are other similar pages in this wiki that might help, e.g. Version Status and Roadmap. This page is intended as a list of general tasks that need to be done in ReactOS. If a certain component already exists, consider filing a bug report.

Statuses: planned, implementation started, implementation finished.
