Its not negativity. At least in my case, its a very careful, though probably too optimistic calculation. You are free to point out errors in it. Negativity is not considered a vaild point in business negotiations/calculations.

It would probably be a better idea to hire them to work on ReactOS, and also using ReactOS improvements to generate a distribution called Jigle for POS systems. The project itself doesn't need to be renamed to Jigle, in fact, it would probably be better for it to remain named ReactOS. However, an advert on the site indicated it is sponsored by the company would be good.

I think hiring is the wrong word:

First, with which ReactOS money are we going to pay them? ;)

In the other hand, why hiring them for doing something they need for their Bussiness? It doesnt seem to have sense..

Pharaoh_Atem: Right, a company wants to hire ROS's devs to do something. Do you think they would need to do that if they could do the job themselves? So HOW could ROS hire people from this company at all? :D

@Black_fox

No company wants to hire ReactOS developers. The guy keeps silent and he even didnt reply to our comments. He hasn`t contact developers themselves, only what he did was this thread and one pdf.

Every company relying with its proposals on this forum is going to realize it is not the correct place, sooner or later, I agree with that. My point was that Pharaoh_Atem kind of reversed the roles of who hires who :)
