I've been doing a little testing on ReactOS for the past several years. 
  Here are the Win32 programs I use:

I've also worked a bit to get ReactOS working on some embedded hardware. 
  You can read a little more about that here:

I think ReactOS is usable right now for Kiosk type apps (on a system 
that only runs a single app).  I doubt it will ever be good enough to 
use as my main OS, but for embedded (console or GUI) apps it is probably 
very close.  And the full source code is available so there is little 
risk in such use.
