ReactOS (0.4.11 and 0.4.13 builds) can be used as (close. somethimes the OS when installing does not cooperate ) daily use OS virtualized under VirtualBox 5.x to program in C language, using "ZinjaI " IDE.
Using simple didactic programs (using arrays, struct, functions,...).

It is something that I´m still testing with excellent results, but I´m surprised how stable is using ZinjaI to learn to program under ROS. :D

Hardware OpenGL working with the ATI Radeon HD 4250 and the following drivers

Seems i was mistaken hardware OpenGL fails with ATI drivers i didn't realize you have to manually select the driver

AFAIK you shouldn't actually override the graphics renderer with ones provided by GPU driver, it tends to cause issues and these should be already set as "System Default". To determine whether you're using GPU for rendering, please try wglinfo. Also, can you acheive such performance with ROS SW or Mesa3D (you can override by these)?

When set to "System Default" it's using ROS SW the performance seems to be attributed to 2d hardware acceleration because using the VESA driver i get about 32fps with wglgears.

Windows 8 x64 in VirtualBox 2.1.0 running on ReactOS, x64 guest virtualization needs VT-x capable hardware (in this case, a Lenovo Y50).

ReactOS x64 works as well ;)

ReactOS boots from the ext2 volume, thanks to the recent ext2 fixes in FreeLDR
Image

Because of FreeLDR still lacking a working ext2 boot sector, I have installed FreeLDR on another FAT32 volume.

EDIT:
FreeLoader is able to boot Windows from ext2 volume as well.

ReactOS booted from RAM disk with write access to the boot volume (using the Windows 2003 RAM disk driver), the volume on HDD image is formatted using ext2 file system.

My old version of Mouse and Keyboard recorder from RobotSoft works in ReactOS.

But does it actually do what it is advertised for? (aka. does it actually work?)

Yes, it's hard to demonstrate with an image but it does repeat my mouse movement and clicks and keyboard typing.

I'm really curious how you did it. I've tried with NT4 and ext2ifs driver and got "Unknown hard error" (on blue boot screen) after booting it from ext2 partition with FreeLDR. No idea where I made mistake.

We have a EXT2 driver in ROS. Problem is we have no EXT2 compatible bootsector yet. Thus you need a way to start freeldr without it. Then it should boot.

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

You need to load all the needed drivers at boot-time (change the Start value to 0 for each key in HKLM\CurrentControlSet\Services), since NT 4.0 has issues loading them from the ext2 volume. Also change their image path to "system32\drivers\driver_name.sys" (add the ImagePath entry if it doesn't exist), so FreeLDR doesn't fail to load these.

I don't really know how to use the program, but QuarkXPress 5.0 seems to install and work well on Reactos 0.4.12! There do seem to be some minor graphical issues though. Edit: I can't seem to embed the picture directly, but here's the link :p Image

It looks as if it is working - Try creating a frame and some text, dropping a picture into it and then saving, re-open it. If it is then that's quite impressive. Quark Express was the industry standard tool for layout in the recent past.
