I presume that was humour ? Anyway, FWIW, I'm against dropping 9x
support, at least until ReactOS has a GUI || Windows XP stops requiring
activation. (I play with my hardware. Lots... )

I'm more worried about the rumours/comments/statments that XP has a new
kernel - leading to the 3/4th (depending if you consider ME to be
substantively different under the hood) set of vaguaries that Cygwin has
to support :|....
