I've tried it out, and couldn't get it to work with the few installers I tried.

It's alpha software, and Wikipedia has this to say about its usability:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ReactOS#Usability
At Chemnitz 2010, the ReactOS development team considered ReactOS 0.3.12 as alpha-stage software, not feature-complete and not suitable for everyday use. The kernel is incomplete, and only a few Windows applications run without problems.


Of course, you could just try it out yourself. It's free to download, and the "Preloaded with QEMU" download has it preloaded and includes the QEMU virtual machine for running it as a VM on an existing PC:
