As an AutoCad user on 3 PCs I would like to escape the dependency on Windows.
Migrating from WinXP to Win7 (a new PC) has been very disruptive to our workflow.
I am not IT trained., so I have spent about 4 months in my spare time, coming to terms with Win7 (We had to replace a WinXP machine)
Personally I prefer using the keyboard, -- the concept of Win8 smacks of dumbing down, where we are assumed to be illiterate and can only respond to pictures (like my 3 year old grand son) + poking at screens with greasy fingers is a time waster.
My tablet (a tool) is a boon, but the fingered screen (sweat and grease) inhibits reading data, especially outdoors.
We use PCs as TOOLS -- WinXP has been slick-n-quick since 2003 (and still operates perfectly well today on 10 year old PCs. Security is not an issue because all PCs are stand alone.
I look forward to evaluating "ReactOS" with Autocad2006.
I am a patient man. Come the revolution !!!

I have huge difficulty with MS style of boys-toys with Windows dumbed down for the illiterate.
Have we approached a time where nobody can read one word and interpret its meaning?
I like my UI clean and simple to do "work" -- not play!. MS do not give us non-players any choices, but MS feed off the "toys" approach to make money.
When I discovered Classic Shell" about 3 weeks ago I have been very impressed with the adaptability of Classic Shell.
And to have upgrades that are improvements not just adding 5 other ways to do one task (bloat) and call it progress
I am delighted with "Classic Shell" it gives me back simplicity, Unfortunately CS cannot remove the inherited bloat of Win 7 but at least it gives me back a "clean" font end. Thank you for a brilliant project.
