ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

I want this os to succeed so badly, what would it take to just make it work like a really stable version of win xp sp3? I don't care if I can never use newer or more advanced software, win xp sp3 could run everything I will ever need. I just need this to be able to do what win xp sp3 could. How can that be accomplished?

Watching this was heartbreaking; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4Jp-WIxZxQ

Undetermined amount of years divided by donation money plus more developers who know NT's internals.
I know it's hard to stay patient, but it helps to browse the JIRA to see how progress is going.
Also ReactOS is still targeting SP2. Once it's substantially finished it can begin to target SP3, and maybe even eventually Vista.

I didn't know that! Is SP2 equivalent to XP's SP3?

Not quite true. XP SP3 basically shifted XP over to the 2k3 codebase.

Well, it's still 5.1 vs 5.2, right? But sure, might be true....

Finally working marginally well in VirtualBox.
And with the new versions I am beginning to lose my attitude towards ReactOS stability.

Please developers: Get it working out of the box with default drivers and guest additions on VirtualBox 4.3.40 and higher.
By doing this, it will become more practical for beta testing for the rest of the world.
