Check this project out in IndieGogo... such a shame :(

Post by andreissoft »

Hello, everybody.

I noticed that, for some time, the donations haven't been going very steady for ReactOS.
And, in a coffee break, i started checking out IndieGoGo for "other projects", to see how they're doing.

And... to my surprise guess what i found :

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/auto ... or-for-men

The project started on April the 9-th and already achieved 391% (!!!) of its intended target. Almost 4 times than
what it demanded!!! You may guess from the URL what it is and what it does. Now, i'm not judging the
project itself - it's their business and their "blower", i do not even judge the people who back it. Most of them
"Anonymous" :) However, this result is sad to see...

I have strong reasons to believe and i suppose most of you will agree that ReactOS will be by far more useful for
us all - and most of humanity, in general - than an electronic "blowjob machine". One can buy a 3d printer and print
its own sextoys from ReactOS if one really wants to.

Just spared a thought...

Hahahaha...
That is odd..
But it is known that Startup companies could use Anonymous pushes to reach the goal, make some Marketing afterwards(Ey we reached the goal 300%), and probably some "blowjob" real guys buying the perk through IGG.
The unexpected buyers through IGG will cover IGG taxes, and if not, the IGG cost is cheap regarding the Marketing beneficts afterwards.
So pick with a grain of salt the "odd" projects.

This is free market environment, you are free to offer and to demand, no shame in filling a niche (pun not intended). Also this thread is off-topic.

Have you ever considered that there might be a reason why Hugh Hefner is a rich man? ;)

The conclusion is obvious, though: we must sell sex-toys to finance ReactOS!

They get more funding than we do. Now that sucks. ;-)

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