Personalized USB-Sticks

Now that usb-support is on the way and soon to be merged into trunk, i envision my very own usb-stick with reactos on it.

And when i do i don't want just an ordinary stick. Does anyone know of an online service where yolu can order your own personalized flash-pen, with ractos-color -logo -form?


That would also be an perfect way for promotion: i know of purchable sticks that already contain an bulk of opensource softwar, and some with preinstalled linux.

Just imagine a small 1gig usb stick with reactos on it and still have plenty of free space. you can't do that with windows, you'd need al last 32gb for that....

Hell even a 256mb stick would fit...

That's AWESOME! As long as prices can be reasonable (which for me means < $50 USD) I would definitely buy one!

I like the Arbor and Sentinel designs myself.

EDIT - Note that Sentinel glows when plugged in. :)

EDIT 2:
I just found this link: How to boot from USB if your computer doesn't support it. Thought I'd post it here since I found it useful.

Perhaps one could put the ROS logo on a round one? :ugeek: There seems to be a variety of shapes to choose from.

I am debating, whether that usbdirect account constitutes spamming.

I am not trying to spam, I do have a genuine interest in ReactOS and came across this post. I saw all of these other companies listed on here and figured I would add the link so people could check out some of the stuff we do.

I can remove the link if it's going to cause an issue.

I don't think it's a problem. Your last post confirmed that you are no spambot at least ^^
But PR for other companies is a bit... frowned here.

Shame on you Webunny! That is not called for!

Thorium will help ReactOS if it gets established, but 'usbdirect.ca' will not, unless they care to make a sizeable donation!

That's a whole other debate.

The parent poster said PR for others is frowned upon, and I said; except for thorium. Is there anyone denying that? No. Case closed.

Subtext, you know ^^

For all who don't know yet:
Thorium Group is Aleksey Bragin, well known as our current Project Coordinator, and Steven Edwards was our former Coordinator and still is a loyal supporter of the Project.
Thorium IS ReactOS. And has a cool name :-D

So... SUPPORT IT :-D (See my sig)
