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.

I wasn't successful with it on the 0.3 release. Got their version of the BSOD.

I was about to say the same thing-- The mouse is probably jumpy because the VMWare Additions aren't installed. For me this happens with a lot of operating systems. Admittedly I haven't tried ReactOS but I'm confident that this is the case.

However I don't know if they actually work on ReactOS-- They are just standard drivers after all and I'm not sure if they're supported yet (?)
