Very primitive. The LiveCD always get a BSOD, the VM version has no installer included.
It look like Windows 95.

Well. I tried the VBox version and the VMWare version and both had real problems. I ended up installing in VBox using the install ISO. It took a couple of attempts to get it running. I even managed to install the guest additions but even then it is stuck at the resolution I installed it with. I don't think I have a working network connection yet and it did BSOD once. It may be primitive but it boots in 5 seconds even in a VM.

Yes. The ReactOS always reacts with a BSOD I'd change my desktop if it wouldn't BSOD

I wish I hadn't thrown out my old Pentium 3 machine, maybe ReactOS would work on it.
