I looked at ReactOS, and I have it working in a VM.  But, it's far from ready for 
real users.   Consider it at the Alpha test stage just now.

One to keep an eye on perhaps, but only for the curious.

I did get PC-BSD running on a friends laptop, while waiting for a new hard drive.  
(I have temporary drives to "play" with)  "It works" is about all that I'd say.  Fast 
and slick it was not sadly, though everything there did work without any need for 

(PC has 4G RAM, and a 2.2GHz dual core AMD 64 bit CPU, I forget the graphics 
system details.   It ran Win7 Pro very fast by comparison, what she wanted put 
back on.)
