ReactOS-Beta found on Sourceforge

Post by timmay2019 »

Hi all

I would like to point out that there is guy "crank123603" who has released a project on sourceforge called ReactOS-Beta. I've looked through this and all that the user has done is link to the trunk builds ROS page and called them a beta. I'm sure crank has good intentions by making ROS known but to call ROS a beta (which it isn't yet) and point to the trunk builds makes it confusing. Also the download link points to a Wine Gecko installer.

Here is the link: http://sourceforge.net/projects/reactosbeta/

This is disturbing. He doesn't seem to be from the ROS project, and he doesn't say that he's working independently. He's just calling it ReactOS-Beta and linking to the daily builds. I agree - this is very misleading. I request that one of the mods / other appropriate person contact him ASAP.

I suggest that you edit your post because the first half of your sentence does not make sense.
if you extend your what? you might what? way

This part of the sentence does make sense.
much more you might even find people selling it on ebay and other sites

Are you trying to say this:
if you extend your search you might find way more,
you might even find people selling it on ebay and other sites.

TIP:
Use the preview button, then read what you have just written to make sure that it makes sense and there are no errors.
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.

They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

I did a search using Bing using 'reactos ebay' and found a couple of listings that seem to indicate they are selling ReactOS on eBay (can not view pages while at work, eBay blocked).

I agree, preview is a good way to check it before you post it. :ugeek:
