Yes. Interesting concept and I wish them all the best, but I'll almost certainly never use it as a main OS.
I keep a ReactOS virtual machine handy to keep up with their changes and improvements. One day it would be great if I could use it for tasks that require Windows, instead of the Windows VMs I also have.

I have it installed in VirtualBox and play with it now and then. Some things work well, others work basically not at all. I am hoping that it will get good enough that I can install it in VirtualBox for those who want to use Linux but have just a few programs they need Windows (or equivalent) for. Not quite there yet.
