It will be released when it meets the community's requirements, which depends on what software and hardware the community chose. It's probably safe to bet that it will be released sometime between tomorrow and December 31, 2099. Whenever it releases, it will certainly not be compatible with all games from the 90s until today, and it will certainly not be compatible with all drivers and software. Those goals are likely to be (mostly) reached in v1.0, which will be released anywhere from a year to a thousand years after ReactOS Community Edition, depending on funding and developer availability.

In the meantime, many people enjoy using Linux and running Windows software under WINE, both of which are free.

Quite a bold statement! THAT ambitious, huh?

:shock:

It's not possible to say how much longer it will take, but it's easy to see that less money means longer in this context, which is all that was stated.
