Re: Versions release frequency

I would rather they moved to something like 2 months of development and 1 month of regression testing, change log commits and t...

Re: ReactOS boot form USB

It was wildly reported you could not have more then one copy of windows 98 on one hard drive on different partitions that you could boot to but I found a way. My process was install win98 to a hard drive then remove and replace with another hard drive then again install win98. Add the 2nd hard drive...

Go after subscribers also - people who might be prepared to have 5-10 dollars deducted from there credit card each month as an example. if it gets big enough you could ofter prizes to be drawn.

0.3.1 will not be as stable as 0.3.0, we have decided to release more often which will hopefully attract in the long term more people and generate more attentation for ReactOS.
