I think, writing Free Software for Windows just binds the users tighter 
to that unfree system!

Just recently I read an article in a magazine, which came to the 
conclusion, that there would be no reason to change to [GNU/]Linux, 
because all the software they tested is also available for Windows.

Well, I think ReactOS can never keep up with Windows - because it is 
controlled by one single company. If ReactOS comes too close, 
Microsoft simply changes something in their system to make it 
incompatible. They are the ones, who have the finger at the trigger

Remember OS/2 - even IBM couldn't keep up.
