It's 5th 10.2009. Where's 0.4.2?

Post by Dany0 » Mon Oct 05, 2009 12:14 am

I think someone got stuck at 0.3.11

If you need a pimp or quick help I can try to search for someone that can do that. Just MS made all Windows's in big hurry, putting out in the world a ********** :lol: just because he couldn't finish it all in time. But ROS team just ignores the time! I mean 0.4.2 is such a nice number, and some could hope he'd see it today but!

What's the problem, you know I didn't watch it last year or two, but again :!: :?:

It's just the nowhere it's going with this tempo. I just dunno, is it really so hard & complex that it can't be done in 2 months?

Just ignore or delete this if I am wrong, you understand, I just don't know much things and search gives no results.... :D

I see the main wiki page still points to the outdated “Roadmap” page…

It's not like anyone who knows the project takes that page seriously though.
Except maybe the bug list each version links to.

Oh, the humor in that sentence.

Higher version number wouldn`t make it work better.

The outdated page can bring about a bad impression. It would be better to fix it or to remove it from public view.

No, it won't.

Hrere, wanna download ReactOS 3.10.0?

Version number does not affect the quality of the software.

I think he means higher version number, except with all the milestones being achieved for the previous versions.

Though I have thought that the next version is going to overshoot the earliest next release date considerably. It's not a good thing, I want this project to be finished soon as possible if not now. Though it's not something we can criticize. The previous version was released on the earliest release date. I would love to hire you guys to get this done. Though I just have to wait until i make a fortune 500 company.

ReactOS will never be done unless it is abandoned. It is an on going project, not a single event meant to be completed. And Version Number Has No Meaning It is simply a marker for the release of each build.

But more releases gives more visibility to the project. Which would attract new users/testers/developers.
:roll:

Also Reactos team should try to find a sponsor or another way to raise funds. Then a system of 'bounties' could be implemented, which would lead to more developer work. It works well for HaikuOS for example.

if you don't like the direction this project is taking, go find something else better to do with your time than whining.

Unstable releases will not attract any developer ... If you really want to see changes in ReactOS, go and download the builds which are automatically created with each revision of SVN! This also indicates the progress this project takes - or watch the SVN commit messages on cia.vc

Or you can donate all your fortune or 0,7% of your salary to ReactOS project.
