ReactOS works! Sort of …
On a whim, I installed the latest pre-release release of ReactOS today. I tried it a long time ago and had no luck whatsoever — black screens, nonbooting or just generalized irregular behavior — and so I rarely give it a thought.
But I was surprised to find that the live CD version — which weighs in at a size comparable to Slitaz — works great, and the installation version does its job too.
For the most part. I get a weird split-screen effect, with the lower half of the screen rolling up from the bottom, like a TV with a busted vertical hold.
