ReactOS I downloaded a few VMware images for use in VMware player. The mouse (a PS/2 type) did not work either in ReactOS or in Syllable, but did work in PC-BSD (all in VMware Player). Later, I downloaded the install-cd iso of ReactOS and burned it to a CD. The image is a tiny download (19MB uncompressed), so it didn't take long. I intended to install ReactOS on a laptop and desktop.

Mouse

I'd just like to note that the mouse is known to work in Syllable running on VMWare. There is an issue with mouse syncronisation in Syllable which occasionally means the mouse is not detected correctly, which you may have triggered. 99% of the time you should have no issues, and of course the bug will be fixed (Eventually)

I wonder if this is a VMware[ Player]-on-[Gentoo ]Linux problem; it's hard to say since PC-BSD in VMware Player for Gentoo Linux detects the mouse and mouse movements.

Regarding the mouse: I have twice attempted to install releases of Syllable on my machine in native mode. My PS2 mouse won't work with the OS. The culprit? SiS chipset. Someone on the forum suggested I use a USB mouse instead.
The same hardware works with the original AtheOS. (Without the luxury of Atapi drivers, of course.)
