I'm pretty sure my problem is not the same. I don't boot into GUI
and I let ReactOS be idle for a while and the VMware monitor still
use all CPU time. With Linux it does the same until a few seconds
after leaving GRUB. Then CPU usage varies until Linux is idle and
yhen CPU usage is almost zero. I suspect maybe it is due to Linux
utilizing power management and VMware recognizes it or something
like that.
