    That really doesn't look all that bad. I might try it out in a VM as well one day.

    I created that some time ago. The programs crash quite a lot. Explorer crashed twice creating those images. As well as a live CD they offer pre-built versions for Quemu, VMPlayer and VBox. The only one I could get to work at the time was VMPlayer. It has probably been updated since.

    Thanks for the information and I'll keep that in mind.

    Installs nicely on Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10 Hyper-V too, in fact it's the fastest OS installation I've seen taking about 3 minutes from starting the installation to desktop. However, I find ReactOS totally useless; it feels like a slow Windows 2000, looks like Windows 2000, is generally speaking very ugly and clumsy (my personal opinion, others might think otherwise).

    I agree it sucks. BTW I sorted the reason the VBox version didn't work. It has file references that are invalid. If you edit the ,vbox file in Notepad++ you can remove them from the <DVDImages></DVDImages> section and it loads fine. It only took about a minute to BSOD trying to install Firefox though. Ho hum!

    The Windows look more like Linux than Windows. The taskbar reminds me Vista and the fly-outs are like XP or some Linux. But if they can make it work, why not.

    I think it would make more sense to beef up the Wine, then a lot of systems could benefit.

    I think ReactOS uses Wine executables.

    These three points make me almost sure that we get a new build today, sometime around noon PST. So sure that I am willing to bet on it .
    Too bad buddy it was a good shot,
    Fridays are better so Microsoft can sit out the weekend and come in Monday for a review tour

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    I think Kari lost his bet, but gets the consolation prize!

Where can bugs in builds be reported?
Other than the built in feedback app - because it has a bug for me on build 10166 and is just a blue windows with a logo that doesn't provide any means to do anything with it. On build 10166, I'm finding there to be many bugs. Some of them are: ...
