Q.  What's the best way to try out ReactOS with VMware?

A.  I tried installing their plain .iso and it didn't work so well.
Then I noticed they have a release preinstalled on a VMware machine.
https://www.reactos.org/download
This worked much better for me.

To use it:
- Download and unzip
- In VMware, click on "Open a Virtual Machine" and browse to the .vmx file that was just unzipped

Surprisingly they have the OS type set to Windows XP Professional.
I would have expected Windows NT.
