Well Tsvetan has some mental problems ... He is pretty famous troll in many bulgarian forums ... just don`t pay him attention. Try to ignore him as much as u can.

The guy who started Tsonic has been spamming not only developers but also testers. They've posted links to the leaked MS Windows source code and they've stripped out all the copyright headers in the code they took from us. That's copyright violation for both MS' and our stuff and a GPL violation for our stuff. We don't like them for a VERY good reason.

But he didn't rename our ReactOS explorer. Look at his Sreenshot of his Tsonic OS: http://sourceforge.net/project/screensh ... _id=215986 (Date: 01.03.2008)

Anyway - if you're statements are true, it is not very nice not to mention ReactOS as the groundwork of their work. But believing you Z98 that Tsonic OS would be a copyright violation for our GPL'ed stuff and especially MS stuff, too, it might be better that they didn't mentioned ReactOS too much except of our ReactOS explorer.

Legally, we could order Tsonic to shut down. We've already gotten them banned multiple times from sourceforge and got their site host to pull the plug, but these guys are bloody persistent. We'll keep at it if we have to, cause leaving them alone is just asking for trouble in the future.

Just went looking at the sourceforge site. Nothing in the cvs. There files No iso. Old information how to run wine application. Any supporter of wine would not be touching 2002 versions of wine with a ten foot pole. And some replacement images for wall paper and login screen.

So currently mostly inside rules of sourceforge. Maybe they are learning. Except looks like they have relabeled the kde 4.0 installer.

Guys, as I said hes just a retard ... don`t take him seriously. Nothing is going to happen with "his OS". Too bad I can`t translate all posts in linux-bg.org or some other big bulgarian forums to show you how funny this guy could be :).
