Please bear in mind that ReactOS 0.3.14 is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is not recommended for everyday use.

'Nuff said!

Who are "they"?
The actual good React-OS guys said that the scope is to become fully compatible (some day).
Right now even NTFS support is missing :(.

The project has been around sine 1998 in various forms, and given the hobby nature of development I wouldn't expect it to do much more than boot. If any of the items on the following list (fairly extensive) are important to you or apps you may want to run, I'd recommend just sticking with Windows instead:
MCTS Windows Internals, MCITP Server 2008 EA, MCTS MDT/BDD, MCSE/MCSA Server 2003, Server 2012, Windows 8

Some of their utilities are neat. They have ctm, a console-mode task mamager, and the freedos command.com (cmd.exe) and edit.com (edit.exe) recompiled to Winnt. You can get things like the device manager and user manager to function without all that other MS legacy attached to it.
