We *could*, but is anyone going to? And what for conditions do you get, there? I note the page where it says "1.2 Selling Products. Users who would like to sell their Products through On-Disk.com must also enter into the Developers Agreement." is blanc and unreachable, for instance; not a very good sign. Can reactos get 50% of any 'profits', at on-disk? If we do it ourselves, at least we can play closer to the ball, and also make gestures to give it away, for bigger donations, for instance.
If there really is some interest with fans and supporters and/or even the casually interested, and no-one wants to take the risk, I want to give it a try. But maybe I should first make a poll or something, to gauge the interest, because otherwise, I'm stuck with 500 Ros-CD's.
bnts' graphical inlay is pretty damn good. I first thought maybe to ask to redo it in a smaller form, for a cardboard sleeve print, but those are pretty expensive in small quantities (alas, because I like those the best). But with classical DVD-boxes and frontpages where his format is meant for, it's the cheapest ratio, and one could go as low as 5 euro for a disk, or something. In the end, it's primarily still a donation-effort, of course, but one with a slight incentive.

Well, maybe it was just gossip. I just figured that it was partially true since the cover had never been uploaded (the version on the svn is an early draft and has tons of mistakes) and it wasn't on the download page. I'm not mad, and I'll make another version if you want it, but I didn't want to waste my time if the previous two versions weren't ever used. Sorry for the misunderstanding
No, you did a great job. You keep at it. It's mostly due to common lethargy and apathy, me thinks. It's just very difficult to move anything in a project like this. The devs have better things to do, and lot's of others just talk but don't do much or won't take a risk. What do you think of the plan to actually make (print) and sell Ros-CD's?
Did you already make something that could be used to print ON a CD? With the following measurements:

Otherwise, feel free to do so.
