Personalized USB-Sticks

Post by Alahndro »

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

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!
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - with some complementary scripts.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

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