We have no interest in ascii-based OS's, we have no interest in 9x/ME.

Why? ReactOS apps have no value in being built as ASCII.
ASCII is both rude and prehistoric. Move on, this is the 21st century,
ReactOS is a unicode operating system.
As far as we're concerned Win9x is dead.

I'd hate to see you work with C#, you'd have a fit as it's unicode only.
I have visions of you p/invoking everything to make sure you can still build
your .NET apps as ASCII.

Get yourself a decent debugger then, or close your eyes, or give up.
