According to ReactOS team MSVC 2010 still supports WinXP target.
I say we should keep the WinXP support up as long as the ReactOS team 
does not support WinNT5 binaries.
It is a good and sound strategy, we would promote another OpenSource 

I think build additional legacy WinXP binary will not hurt us, and it 
might be not so much more work. We could explain this if we are 
releasing 4.2.0 before ReactOS has made the transition.
That would fit to our strategy in Total. We also do support AmigaOS and 
OS/2 warp inofficially. Maybe it would bring us sympathy from another 
Community if we promote their target.
Do you agree on the strategy or do you think it would cost us to much 

I have found 2 more Windows action Items I forgot about:

a) MSI installer
b) signed install binary.

Do you think these Items should be trackked too?
If so where should they be on our list?
