I can imagine the News:
BIG CORPORATION SUES A GROUP OF COLLEGES FOR
DEVELOPING A NEW WINDOWS.
MICROSOFT THREATENS A LITTLE NON PROFIT PROYECT!
MICROSOFT AGAINST LIBRE SOFTWARE!
This has the chance to make microsoft more damage than
you think they can do to ReactOS, unless they feel
really threatened i doubt there will be any microsoft
legal atack unless you use clearly microsoft code in
the near or intermediate time.
