Windows Meida Player 7 works too! But with some bugs. The installer displays the list of installation components only in compatibility mode with Windows 98 / ME. With the default compatibility mode, the installation can not continue. In the player itself, the settings window from the menu bar does not open, and when playing a media file, the volume change/mute/rewind buttons are not visible and not clickable. Only the Play and Stop buttons works. Visualization and compact mode works too, but also with some drawing problems.

Artrage 4, the installer hangs but if you zip the directory from windows it works. I don't have later versions but they don't officially support windows XP so I don't know if they'd run.

Spotify v0.9.7.16
Issues: Drawing on edges of windowed mode, unable to fetch Radios/Discover/etc tabs, only your playlists and library. Typical sound driver issues apply here as well.
Other than that; songs play nicely without any third-party library required, sound quality is superb, doesn't lag (unlike some versions).

I've waited so long for this! :D

Vanilla ROS 0.4.7 release, plus installed MSVC 2010 and Mesa3D. Downloaded latest Minetest from their website and it worked like a dream! Yesss!

Avast! Free Antivirus 7.0 works in ReactOS! The Avast Servise starts succesfully and all security modules works nice, include real-time protection! Updating the virus database to the latest version works perfectly too!

Just wondering - have you tried getting a virus for it to remove?

Isn't 7.x pretty old now? Do they still update it anymore?

Of course.

It removes EICAR and WannaCry successfully.

That's really awesome! Does it actually work? Can you create a Gordian Digital Knot by remoting into the host PC? Anyone brave enough to try? :twisted:

That's awesome! Finally a (somewhat) reasonable solution for managing older ESX hosts from a Linux desktop! Just create a lightweight ROS VM in VBox and install vSphere Client. Very cool.
