ReactOS - over vmware/virtualbox

an alternative Windows compatible Operating System
ReactOS at 2018

[updated 2018]
After 10 years the project is still alive and its quite reliable now and it is close to replace Windows XP.

Install on a virtual machine as:
other linux32
RAM 1,2gb
HD 2gb (VDI dynamic)
NET: pcnet fastIII

(add shared folder)

[old entry:2008]Too far to be a stable version free of hang ups or blue screens.
In conclusion too experimental at least for normal users however the system is working and improving quickly and maybe when you are reading that could be a usable system

Blue screen like in the real Windows ;)
