For those who hate Linux or those who need to run Windows
software that don't want to pay $400+ for a software license,
check out ReactOS. Please don't pirate Windows, that is hard
on competitors. ReactOS needs people who can do C system
programming. ReactOS is licensed under the GNU GPL.
See http://www.reactos.org if you are interested.
I assume that at least some of you, if not most, are using
Microsoft Windows right now and I know this because Microsoft
has a monopoly.
This monopoly makes me wonder, what if a successor to the coco
that takes the coco far enough forward to compete with the PC
came out? Imagine a COCO clone that is downward compatible
running either ReactOS or Linux as optional OSes with a
more Extended basic as the default language.
Be aware that ReactOS isn't out of alpha state yet and it
lacks even stable file system support.
