ReactOS In the past, I've installed ReactOS to show my students a Microsoft alternative. The performance was slow and there was not much to do. This latest revision offers more! For my review, I used the freeware VMWare Player since I was using the company server. I'm the only one who knows how to use it.

Same here. ReactOS looks promising, but for me, it is essentially failed expectations up to now. Most installations did not work, let alone running the programs, save those included.
Still alpha.

Compatability and stability are improving all the time.
Current trunk has already advanced a great deal over the 0.3.0 release.

The 0.3.1 changelog will also be a biggie ;)

"Still alpha."

This is the claim of the software. Don't slam the devs for releasing code before final release. If you weren't interested in alpha quality code, wait until the the 1.0 release. The site says the project is still alpha.
