Interesting idea, indeed, to have the ability to run linux applications on
top of ReactOS.  I think that it'd be great, actually, because I use an
awful lot of Linux applications, and it sounds like actually, they
wouldn't suffer from the same type of speed problems and issues that WINE
does running Windows apps on Linux, nor Cygwin apps on Windows (because
instead of emulating, we'd have the real deal).

That might be something that I can *try* to help with, even, but like I've
made reference to before, I know next to nothing but C syntax.  :-P
