ReactOS is somewhat of a joke at this point.  I've personally tried it,
and I cannot see how it can be taken seriously until its cleaned up and
made much more user-friendly.  There's also been some developer "drama"
in recent days, which literally halted the project for months on end,
and I don't know what became of that.

But does it work (e.x. "does it function")?  Yes, it does.
