Not yet much usable either. I was able to compile both NKVDM and NXVM. But NKVDM's doc on how to actually use it seems to completely blank. Simply running it is simply not functional. I can get some result with NXVM though, and its emulation also seems to be better than ReactOS's NTVDM (I can at least get DOS 7's EDIT to work for instance), but overall it is still quite unstable and is certainly FAR behind Win2K's NTVDM for example. Obviously it can't be put into real use yet.
