Microsoft to Invest in Rogue Android Startup Cyanogen. Microsoft would be a minority investor in a roughly $70 million round of equity financing that values Cyanogen in the high hundreds of millions, one of the people said
Google should send some money to support Reactos as reciprocation. PR people should perhaps contact Google :D

It would be neat if Google did invest in ReactOS, just to spite Microsoft. :ugeek:

From film Godfather:
Michael: It's not personal, Sonny. It's strictly business.
:D
It can be for Google business like Red Hat, Ubuntu, or ... Android (more or less open source)

On https://cyngn.com/press/cyanogen-raises ... -c-funding write "Cyanogen Raises $80 Million in Series C Funding".
" The financing was led by Premji Invest and includes participation from new strategic investors Twitter Ventures, Qualcomm Incorporated, Telefónica Ventures, Smartfren Telecom, Index Ventures, Access Industries (the US-based industrial group headed by Len Blavatnik), Rupert Murdoch, Vivi Nevo, and several yet to be announced partners. Existing investors Benchmark, Andreessen Horowitz, Redpoint Ventures, and Tencent Holdings Ltd. also participated. " Perhaps contacting these subjects would bring some money for Reactos.

Wishing for free money is not productive.

This can be risky investment. It can work like Red Hat, Ubuntu, or Android. Public sector, industry, home users could use (ready) Reactos and pay for support, donate. Though philanthrophy is also welcome.
