Money for ReactOS

Post by Jedi-to-be » Mon Sep 21, 2009 3:58 pm

25000 downloads of ROS each release * 0,005$= 125$ This sum can be double or quadric sized.
This money can be earned by ROS community each time of release.

I'm sorry Jeti but I have to write you off as a deranged mad man, with no clue as to the purpose or goals of ReactOS. RoS was created to provide a free, and open source alternative to Windows. The arbitrary act of charging for each release, not to mention an Alpha would be an insult to any end user and would kill any community contributions we currently have.

Jeti, your a great tester but this is the single worst Idea, I believe you've ever erected. I don't know how you guys do it in Russia, but RoS is / and will remain free, regardless of any benefits such a charge would bring in. A neutral Internet Deserves a Neutral OS

If you're suggesting asking people to donate every time they download, I'm not sure how that would be better than the current method. Maybe we could post a link at the download page itself, saying "If you like ReactOS, please consider donating", but if we hound people by asking them to donate constantly we'll probably drive people away. People should know that they can donate, but they shouldn't feel pressured to do so or made to feel guilty if they don't.

I dont think its a good idea too. We cant charge money for a Alpha Status OS which is Open Source at all. So... Bug Report CLOSED, WONTFIX!

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Wait is this user pays or ad pays?
If it's user pays most definitely not.
If it as an advert. I have no problem with that. I mean source forge have advertising. Public television has advertising. Google has advertising. All great things that are free and use the money to improve the service.

Though I understand not using it too. Should reactos promote products that are most likely not relevant.

Either way I personally don't mind. Though if it got reactos finished soon. Then maybe the end justifies the means :P.

I am not sure it's a sustainable business model.
After all the number of download had been divided by 3 in 3 years.

3.0 3.1 3.3 3.4 3.5 3.6 3.7 3.8 3.9 3.10
install 130111 107405 91658 128331 29535 78187 81752 61156 42305 44952
live 107258 78954 70999 94541 20699 51839 56645 40447 27322 28505

Sustainable or not is not the issue here. I'm all for having a go for it, after all there isn't much downside to this.

I always believed that if we don't try, we'll never know. :D

back on topic: Some site ads might help so long as they are not rampant and annoying.

Yep and targeted adds. I don't mind ads as long as they are not intrusive and are targeted(for example no porn adds). There are usability rules written somewhere. adds must be distinguishable from the content. A few places had adds with download here in the adds when I was on a page trying to download something. I instead ended up on a Norton page.
