CD Distribution

Post by chris319 »

Hey, check this out:

http://www.osdisc.com/cgi-bin/view.cgi/index.html

They burn and ship Linux and BSD CDs; yes, R.I.N.L. but I wonder if they'd handle ReactOS anyway. There are many of these little operations scattered around the web. This particular outfit charges $3.95 US for a single CD distro plus $2.95 US for shipping within the US or free shipping for orders over $20 US. Best of all, for those in the U.S., they ship via USPS, which means your order appears in your (physical) mailbox one day and you don't have to play tag with Mr. UPS. I used one of these services a while back for a multi-CD distro and was pleased.

The benefit to ReactOS is that if we're going to have CD distros, they would handle the grunt work of order handling (including dealing with credit card companies, PayPal, etc.), the physical burning, packing and shipping of CDs (which can include dealing with USPS as well as international orders), returns, complaints, all that kind of stuff. They would probably want a banner and a link on the ReactOS page, but I don't see that as an obstacle at all. They have a banner on distrowatch.com (http://distrowatch.com/).

Could be a good idea to use this system, but at least not before version 1. I find no point in distributing this way a buggy unfinished OS right now.

Who has set up this shop? If I buy a mug from there, will the money go for ReactOS Foundation? Or have someone set up the shop and have all the money for him/her self?

If the shop is owned by ReactOS Foundation, why is there not link in www.reactos.com?

I may buy someting from there, but I have to be sure it is owned by ReactOS Foundtation.
