Yes, I have heard of this alternative OS.  It is basically a Linux OS that 
is initiated somehow from FreeDOS.  It claims that it can run POISIX 
applications, Win16 and win32 applications.  I seriously doubt it, after 
all, the WINE project is nowhere near completed.  Although, ReactOS does 
seem to be making very good progress.  The goal of this project is to make a 
GNU GPL clone of WIndows NT4.  It even has a GUI now, and it is prgressing 
quite nicely.  It is currently at the 0.21 alpha stage, but they are working 
on it every day, and they are trying to get Mozilla and OpenOffice.org 1.1.0 
to run on it by the end of this year.  More information can be found on it 
at http://www.reactos.org
