Well, just found it from wikipedia when I was reading about Wine. From its site, I can see that It can run Windows apps. Does ReactOS is like open source version of windows. Although the user interfaces just like standard win95, as it can run windows apps with full compatibility, its a good choice i guess (not for me).

It is open source OS that is binary compatible with win32 aplications and drivers but, it is in the very early alpha stage of development and barely works at this point. You usually can't get it to run on a modern system because of a lack of native driver support. But give it a few years, and it should be a pretty neat alternative to Windows(forbidding a lawsuit from Microsoft). Also, if you go to their official site(www.reactos.org) it says they are aiming for NT 5.0(XP/2000) compatibility(not just windows 95).
