Uh, that's strange...
Not only is that old news, I wonder whether you've read TFA. It has an 
update at the bottom:
*"One thing that I forgot to mention, but which is critical to the 
success of Linux, is that there really is no such thing as monolithic 
"Linux." Linux is highly modular and can be trimmed down/beefed up to 
fit a wide variety of applications...on the developers' terms, not Red 
Hat's, Novell's, Canonical's, etc. *

*So, unlike Windows, which can only be what Microsoft dictates, Linux 
can truly be all things to all people, as "fat" or as "skinny" as the 
developer wants it to be. Ubuntu is obese compared to sub-100 KB uClinux 
distributions, for example. Both serve different, and useful, purposes."*

That being said, I love ReactOS and I sure hope that it will actually be 
viable in the near future. From there on I'm expecting the same kind of 
exponential growth (initially) as Linux has seen. In technical terms 
that is.
