Aleksey Bragin announced the 0.3.10 release of ReactOS, the Free Software replacement for Microsoft Windows(TM).
It features a new Universal ATA driver as the default disk driver that allows support for Serial ATA and partitions greater than 8GB.
Also there’s a lot of work done on increasing USB compatibility.
There are still bugs now and then, but as the developers say it
should allow more people to run ReactOS on real hardware
