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.

Windows compatibility, and the opensource world can improve things that Microsoft so far has not been able or willing to fix due to so-called 'compatibility concerns'.

If it was really about compatibility (which sounds reasonable to me), then ReactOS might get stuck at the same points because one of their goals *is* to be compatible with Windows.

But then, with many eyes looking at the problem, one may find a good solution.
