I tried one of the 2007 beta's on my old spare PC (FIC PA-2002 with a Kingston Turbochip AMD K6-II 400MHz CPU and 112MB RAM—12MB of RAM was faulty) and it booted faultlessly. I would have wanted to try installing freeware apps like OpenOffice but didn't.

In developing countries (like the Philippines) where buying 2nd-hand PCs and laptops is a viable option, installing a copy of a stable version of ReactOS and adding your office suite of choice is workable, as an alternative to Linux or XP.
