I need to run some simple Windows programs, and sometimes Wine doesn't make the cut. I wonder if I can run these programs using ReactOS https://www.reactos.org/ , a Windows compatible OS clone that seems to be quite mature now.

I was able to install it in Gnome Boxes, but on the first boot it hangs as soon as it enters the graphical interface. Was anyone able to installing and using ReactOS on Gnome Boxes?

Reactos 0.4.8 is out. Your screenshot says 0.4.7.

GreenTeaOS is more up-to-date than ReactOS now https://greenteaos.github.io/

@MettaCrawler, with 0.4.8 and GreenTeaOS, the situations is even worst. The installation boot session hands in the "Choose language" blue screen.
