Re: 52 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

If anyone says, "what's the point in ReactOS, I have Windows, why would I want ReactOS instead?" I give them this list: Note: The list starts with my own personal desires and then matures into more of a wishlist with reasons supplied by the community. All the reasons are covered whit GNULinux+Wine,...

I am afraid that you have drawn conclusions without knowing very well which.

Re: I Really Want to See Success...But..

We continue with the "bounty" which has proven to be poor. And this is not to be "positive or negative" is to continue and continue with the same mantras: (i Find a way of attracting competent devs that are familiar with the. ii. Encourage others who want to become competent to look at bugs and perh...

Re: Download page missing important information for Newbies

Sorry for my bad English. But I think it is not necessary to include more warnings on the page or the installation because not even Windows have it. You fail to understand that we are talking about people that come to reactos.org and try the OS, then get very disillusioned and go away, because it f...

Re: Download page missing important information for Newbies

Sorry don't understand that enough to be able to reply directly. From the gist of what I think you are saying - I suggest you didn't understand my post either. Sorry for my bad English.

Re: Download page missing important information for Newbies

@dizt3mp3r The fake premise i see is if the unexperienced people who install Windows or GNULinux can destroy their data (or hardware) they easyly can doom any Operating system, wich isn't true as in this case or mostly computers in world dont had any OS installed, in others words, your are talking w...

Re: I Really Want to See Success...But..

Perhaps a Kickstarter would work. ReactOS is and should always remain open source but a paid priority support model could prove beneficial for the financial health of the project. Obviously, the first requirement is the initial funding then once a specific functional milestone is reached, the suppo...

Re: I Really Want to See Success...But..

It always annoys me when I see people who were so willing to give $100+ for Windows licenses or even thousands of dollars for business licenses, but don't give even 1/4 of that to ReactOS. That's not their fault, really. At this point ReactOS is like an innocent little child living in darkness aski...

Re: I Really Want to See Success...But..

The forum receives these sort of posts regularly from frustrated users that want ReactOS now. Do remember that ReactOS does not proceed at the speed you personally would like it to. There is no correlation to your own personal desires and the development contributions of ReactOS devs. ReactOS Devel...

Re: ReactOS's model (or better none model)

No constructive/prosposals all are are open about the explained. Would it be better to you if ReactOS was a for-profit company that didn't give a shit about its users and focused on getting profit?. And that's a Foundation: Would it be better to you if ReactOS was a for-profit company that give an 4...

Re: ReactOS's model (or better none model)

But a Foundation is not needed "for getting things done and working within the laws". And ReactOS is every time far and far to get the goal: Or donations for nothing concrete -for personal or team criteria- or for development things expressed by donator and trasvestism donations from to Woo, a campa...
