If I understood correct one reason it is progressing great is that they're able to (back)port code from FreeBSD. Not sure about the other ones.

The way I see it, it is nostalgia. Which has its value. For ReactOS, it also provides backwards compatibility and essentially is a FOSS and free as in beer Windows implementation. However, there are also progressive OSes such as Nix, Tails, Qubes to name 3, or microkernel-based OSes. These are where the innovation lies.

Nix, Tails, and Qubes are all just Linux dude.
