comment NT Kernel Source
ReactOS uses clean room reverse engineering. It doesn't use the source code itself. Essentially, they look at how each feature behaves and re-implement that feature to mirror the behaviour. They don't copy the logic verbatim.

comment Updating password hashing without forcing a new password for existing users
Why not just keep one field for hash. If the hash doesn't match on user log in, use the old hashing algorithm. If it's a match, you know the user is using the old hashing algorithm -> update with new hash in database.

comment What is the benefit of 64 bit A7 in iPhone
It is suspected that the Nexus 5 will have 3 GB of RAM, and that's being launched next month. I don't think 4 GB+ is as far off as you might think.

comment Vagrant's Users: What are its drawbacks?
If you do use the shared folders option, it's perhaps not a great idea to share your source directly, since files modified in the VM will also be changed in the host. (e.g. a bug executed in the VM could possibly delete source files on the host).
