Snappy Driver Installer - Could this tool be useful for ReactOS?

From https://sdi-tool.org/:
Install missing drivers and update old drivers

If you've lost your driver discs, you're unable to find drivers on the manufacturer's web site or Windows Update can't configure your hardware, use this tool to quickly find and install all missing drivers.

If you're a PC technician, keep Snappy Driver Installer on your USB flash drive or external hard drive and take it with you wherever you go. In environments with no Internet access you can quickly get things working. No more searching for drivers after a clean install, just let Snappy Driver Installer do it's thing and your job will be done in no time.
SourceForge project page: http://sourceforge.net/p/snappy-driver-installer/
Checkout the code with Subversion:

Code: Select all

svn checkout http://svn.code.sf.net/p/snappy-driver-installer/code/trunk/
This tool is thankfully open-source, licensed under the GNU GPL v3+ (this license may not apply to downloaded drivers). It may make it possible to integrate this program into ReactOS in order to get drivers installed more quickly. It is written entirely in C++, so no special libraries are required for running this program. This program also supports skins, so it is possible to create a ReactOS-specific skin to make it feel more at home with the rest of the OS.
The download button on its homepage explicitly mentions these supported operating systems: Windows 2K, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10

As of this writing, I haven't tested this program on ReactOS yet, but will report back here on that once I do.
