ReactOS 0.3.7 Released

ReactOS is a free and open-source operating system based on the Windows NT architecture design, providing support for existing applications and drivers and an alternative to the current dominant consumer and server operating systems.
Most people think of 'NT' as 'WinNT 4', while in reality the term NT is equal to the NT series, which ranges from version 3 over NT5 (2000, XP, 2003) to NT6 (Vista).
The NT architecture was designed by a team lead by David Cutler, a former lead developer of VMS. It took them more than 4 years to combine the best of UNIX, VMS and OS/2 and create the NT architecture.

Summing up the changes in the new release ReactOS 0.3.7

* Improved x64 architecture support
* The start of a real MSVC compiler support project
* Kernel improvements and bugfixes in quite a few parts:
ConfigurationManager, IO Manager, KE, Memory Manager, Object Manager, Process Manager
* Network stack improvements: leakage fixes, increased functionality
* Filesystem driver fixes, making them more compatible with the Microsoft NT cache manager
* Win32 subsystem improvements and synching of most of the Wine usermode DLLs
