When people understands ReactOS is not a Linux distribution.

rm -rf / doesn't work, it's not linux.
ReactOS Donator ~ $5.00 | Linux Mint Donator ~ $1.00 in BTC

Do not say that in-front of ReactOS.

Here is an opinion column by Swapnil Bhartiya at CIO magazine:
Linux is the largest software development project on the planet: Greg Kroah-Hartman

How one measures the size of a software development project is an open question. Is the headcount of the project the measurement? Linux has a lot of contributors to its kernel but IIRC few contributors contribute more than one patch to the code. Microsoft has thousands of full-time employees working on Windows, more if the entire Windows software system is counted. Perhaps one chooses lines of code (LOCs) as the measurement. Will that be the total LOCs of all actively maintained releases or just the LOCs of the most recent release? And total LOCs written or just the LOCs in the final releases?

Let Greg Kroah-Hartman enjoy bragging about the project he works on. He wants to woo skeptical managers at large businesses.
