India?

Reaching out to India is desirable. Population there tends to have strong sense of national pride and would readily explore any means to make themselves independent of anything perceived to be foreign imports/help (read: Microsoft, United States).

To do this however, we need translators.

China

In the week running up to 20090714, there have been a number of Chinese users who have been perusing the forum, all interested in doing development work. They are plato, return, caimouse and asbai. One other chinese user (anfly) and one HK user (ZumarX) signed up in June, but have not been heard from since.

Getting capital through affiliate sales

Basically, ask users what brand of computers they intend to buy over the next few months, sign up for the appropriate affiliate programme, profit.

Information now public in forum. May work together with Elledan (Maya-sama/hackkitten) such that said link gets put into proposed ReactOS Web Store. May discourage ppl due to inconvenience, but if ppl do do it, they may want to buy other ReactOS paraphenelia.

Alternatively, use Topcashback.co.uk as a jump point, since they pass on 100% of the cashback earned from the affiliate programme.

Wine has an affiliate link with Amazon, see http://winehq.org/site/contributing#wpf
