Hello all :)

I just got a VERY interesting email from a fellow who is working on an
alternative operating system called the ReactOS, which is intended to be
a free/GPL clone of Windows NT 4.0

I think it's rather neat and interesting that the ROS team is interested
in incorporating Calmira; personally I have no problem with it as long
as the product into which it is incorporated is licensed as GPL :)

What do you all think?

BTW, the ROS site is at http://www.reactos.com

Happy computing with Calmira! www.calmira.org

I'm very interested in porting Calmira to ROS, since your GUI is
exactly what everyone on the ROS team is wanting. ROS as you know
is GNU GPL/LGPL/Wine licensed. The NT Kernel is GPL. Most of the
DLLs are GPL as well. We have ported Wine shared DLLs too. The
project is moving forward with out a GUI. I have personally examined
Calmira source code and it doesn't look to hard to replace most
of the Win3.1 api with the Win32 api. Porting Calmira to ROS will
extend your project way into the future. I can not speak for
everyone on the ROS mailing list, so far no one has objected with
the this idea.

Oh, I have tested Calmira with my Win 98se and it work great! That is
way I'm personally interested in a port project for Win32.
