Our Withe Paper on http://www.reactos.org/xhtml/en/dev_whitepaper.html says
> The original target for ReactOS, with regards to driver and application
> compatibility, was Microsoft Windows NT 4.0. Since then, Microsoft
> Windows 2000 and Windows XP have been released. Microsoft Windows 2000
> and Windows XP are both descendants of Windows NT. As such we can
> gradually shift our compatibility target without worrying about the
> architecture changing too much. In fact, internally, Windows 2000
> reports version information as Windows 5.0 and Windows XP as Windows
> 5.1. The ReactOS team have decided to maintain Windows NT 4.0 as the
> official compatibility target. This is because most of the resources,
> articles and books on Windows NT/2000/XP technology are written for
> Windows NT 4.0. This does not mean that features present in later

> in ReactOS.
Since we changed the reported version to Windows 2000, i'd say that is
not true anymore is it ?
