I think I heard of this before...
...but it is still interesting: ReactOS.

Basically it is an effort to create an open source OS which is bugwards compatible with WinXP/2k3 for both applications and device drivers.

I was attempting to mess with it a bit in VirtualPC, just for fun, but the last time I checked it wasn't complete enough to use.

I'll give it another try..

This may be an urban legend, but wasn't it during the development of ReactOS that M$' wholesale clandestine usage of BSD socket and/or network code was discovered?

At any rate, I'm waiting with baited breath for an OS that plays all my games, but puts no money in the pocket of Bill Gates and Friends.
