No, it's certainly not dead, though we are in a bit of a...rough situation right now, having recently lost our main backend developer to IRL constraints. I won't deny that our sorry excuse for a blog hasn't done much to help the situation, and I don't blame you for thinking the project is dead. It isn't though - we aren't about to give up without a fight, so to speak.
If it's any reassurance, I do sometimes post smaller, not-exactly-blog-post-worthy bits of progress on our Discord server. I'm not saying that to try to get you to join the server or anything, just to show that, well...progress is still being made.
As much as I'd love to be able to say that we're nearly ready for a public preview of some sort, the reality is that we aren't. We've come a long way, but the road ahead is also a very long one.
I'm simultaneously flattered by and ashamed of that comparison. I, too, am onboard the ReactOS hype train, though I don't expect a finished product from them anytime soon. It saddens me that we're taking so long to produce any sort of results. I hate to admit it, but...I don't blame you for drawing the comparison in regards to time.
Splitwirez has been keeping me up with its development since he first started work on it it, all the way back when it was just a start menu. It's definitely not dead, in fact I'd say it's coming along pretty well. Still got a ways to go before it can be considered finished, but the team has made a tremendous amount of progress on it, and I think there's a lot of potential for it to be something great.
"Tremendous" might be a bit of an overstatement, given the scope of the task at hand...
That's completely irrelevant. Take it to another thread.
