Everybody can post here if wants i test any app on real hardware.

Once tested (whit the lastest trunk build) i will post results in compatibility database (not here).

There are two terms:

-I use modem 3G connection and is not supported yet in ReactOS so avoid app which requires internet.

-Put the link of the downloable app.

Some of the PC spechs are:

Pentium 4@2.5ghz
1 GB RAM
Nvidia FX 5200 128mb AGP. (not working driver).
AC97 realtek sound card. (working driver).
HDD 120gb & HDD 40gb.

If you have another PC, you could share this Internet connection with your testing machine using ICS.

Testing on RealHdw is the most important testing case, but it only if there exist Issues in Jira (http://jira.reactos.org). So you should take a look if there's allready an issue, if not just create one. Another great thing were DebugLogs (WIKI).

CompatDB says what works and what does not - user can just take a look and see the status. JURA (or bug tracker in general) is here to help developers/curious users find out why it doesn't work and to fix it.

@mametoc
You have a spelling mistake in "whit", should be "with"; no offense meant, your English is fine.

There are four types in compatibility database not two (works and what does not). Also don't see the connection between JURA and compatibility database, as fixes to preventing apps working better are not reported in compatibility database.

But i see maybe should changed "test" by "compatibility check".

The suggestion - as always - is to INVOLVE 3rd party software devs to test their products under ReactOS.

I would start from open source softwares of course:
