ReactOS in the wild

Post by eri0o »

So, today I was debugging a problem in a FLIR camera, and telnet to it so I could access it's command line to diagnose the problem. I hit version command to check if the software I am using is correct, these cameras use firmwares based on old Windows CE builds...

The output was the following:

Version 0.4.3 running on WinCE 6.0
Copyright (C) 1994-1998 Tim Norman and others.
Copyright (C) 1998-2009 ReactOS Team
Copyright (C) 2004-2009 FLIR Systems AB

Is this the same ReactOS as this webpage? Does someone has more information on this?

It seems they are using ReactOS' command line interpreter (cmd.exe), which is itself based on the one from FreeDOS (hence "Tim Norman" appearing in the copyright license).

It's a standard E6 camera from Flir with firmware 3.16.0. Just found it curious :)

Do you say this based only on the Tim Norman reference, or is there something else you found?

All I can see from FLIR themselves is a reference to the same version of lwIP that ROS uses:
