People are complaining that this is a low budget project when it is in Alpha stage. Do your self a favor and go find production software not Alpha software if you want perfection. By the way I tried out KVM and it runs so much better and faster than VirtualBox even with multiple programs running...
ReactOS is totally broken garbage that doesn't work. I tried using the official ReactOS VMWare virtual machines. ReactOS crashed when I tried to put a shortcut to Firefox on my desktop. I rebooted. Then I tried to update Firefox. ReactOS crashed again. ReactOS is a cool idea, but terrible in practice. Don't waste your time with this garbage.
I have great expectations for this project. It looks promising.
I tried to use the reactOS live on VBox and it worked just fine, so I went to install it on my laptop. I downloaded the 0.4.1 bootCD and burned it. When I tried to boot from the cd, it shows up a progress bar like windows xp installation and when it completes the screen becomes black and nothing happens. Hope this will be fixed in next releases.
Not bad but could use some work. Some stuff you might be able to use: github.com/andyvand/msirda github.com/andyvand/Microsoft-Windows-Ported Enjoy :D
