There are Epic Wins everywhere waiting to be discovered!
Where are you guys?
Let's go with one of the best Epic Wins discovered today!

TRILLIAN 5.1
This is the latest Trillian out there. No more Windows95sh apps. A 2012 full working app!
Trillian is a chat client that can manage several accounts from just a single place: MSN,Gtalk,Jabber,AIM,etc.
Tested:
-I didnt have a Trillian account so I created one from ReactOS. No tricks. I created through the Trillian Wizard in ReactOS itself at Trillian Setup time
-Added several accounts:Gtalk and MSN.
-Talked to several guys in the different accounts. Some invitations were waiting me to add them as friends. Done!
-Sent several Files through the send Files option in Trillian-gtalk
-Icons working correctly
-Changed the colors of the skin several times.No glitches!
-Changed advanced options:Show non-connected contacts, added and deleted accounts. No problems so far!
-Transparencies seems to work really nice.Look that "Diana has just signed off" transparent border.
-Really stable.No crashes after a big while.
-Executes at boot time without problems.
-User experience: 4,6/5

Problems found:
-During installation, you are requested to introduce data. The installer seems to lost focus,even if it is in foreground.Hence when trying to introduce data in the forms you won't write anything. There is a trick: Recover the focus by ALT+TAB and reach again the installer window. Problem solved. This happened just twice during installing so it is not really a big problem.Trillian itself, the app, doesnt have this problem.Seems it is related just to the Installer.


PD: Sorry about the quality.MS Paint sucks :p

Really nice :-)
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Congratulations and thanks for uncovering this win, Vic :-) I think that the mspaint can save screenshots to PNG without losing quality, doesn't it?

Surprisingly the Turbo Debugger also works:

QCad runs, although there is an issue with dialogs opening behind the main window:

And I finally figured out that to get LBreakout 2 to run, it needs its bundled SDL library updated:

reactos can run ms dos applications now (directly, not by dosbox)?, if is possible wow!!!!!.

Those are win32 console applications. But turbo debugger for win32 does look exactly like its DOS version.

Yeah!it can :)
Just I didnt thought the JPG quality was so so so so so so so nasty!(My godness!) Sorry about the inconvenience. :)
Keep testing guys, in the last months ReactOS app compatibility seems to have increased a LOT.
Retest your fav apps, or just connect to FileHippo and try them :)

May be that I just haven't tried installing it in a long time, but the flash installer/player worked in Opera.
