ReactOS, could be nice

ReactOS is an XP lookalike and runs windows software.
It's in alpha stage and i just tried it somewhat.
It does run PB apps, could be very nice in the future to run as embedded os or something?
Instead of linux i mean..

Is it odd from me to think it may run on this?

It (ReactOS) says it is portable to RISC architecture, so maybe.
Maybe it will be the RISC smartphone OS of the future.
(The R in ARM stands for RISC. It's an ancronym inside and acronym.)

At this time it seems not to work.
Some version difference.

I am still looking for a ultra cheap way to make a mediaplayer(music mostly) but the screen makes it very expensive.
I would use some windows software to make the UI.

I've looked at that too Edwin (ReactOS), and I'd like to see that move forward. My thoughts are that there are so many folks that want to stick with Win XP, it would give another alternative besides Windows 7 XP Mode (which I've been making good use of lately for my work with older data collectors which are difficult to connect to with Windows Mobile Device Center).

I don't need a replacement for legacy windows but the idea of having a processor icw with Windows (XP) is very nice.

Imagne the things you can do with such a small device.
Main reason not use a (android) pad is that i can not repair it myself.
Also the idea that i could stick with Windows programming would be very nice (a major plus actually).

Like i said, (touch)screens are very expensive, there are screens which seem to work with a device like this (yet to be seen of course).
The price makes it almost pointless to create your own hardware.

For electronics and such an ordinary screen could be used, you could also embed the cpu inside the screen.
For example a dell screen has USB and would be sufficient to use imo.
