ReactOS This is release 0.3.1 of ReactOS, an open source effort to develop an operating system that is compatible with applications and drivers written for the Microsoft Windows NT family of operating systems (NT4, 2000, XP, 2003). Mainly, the work focused on rewriting certain parts of the ReactOS Core (kernel, HAL, bootloader, etc).

Virtual Box (vBox) is still too buggy (afaik) and several operating system won't work, including ReactOS.

Additionally ReactOS 0.3.1 hardware support regressed due major kernel mode changes. There are reports it doesn’t work in VPC '07, VPC '04, vBox and in AMD XP and (X2) 64 CPUs. The reason is unfinished code in the kernel involving interrupt handlers/traps.
