Do we really need this kind of compat listing, does it add any benefit over collecting compatibility for single components? --[[User:DangerGround|DangerGround]] 20:37, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
:Currently, and for some time being, no. Testers already list "Testing machines" on their profiles, and tested hardware is collected in subpages under [[Supported Hardware]]. This is something that should wait until Beta status, when enough hardware is supported to list full systems. --[[User:RideBMX|RideBMX]] 01:43, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
::Hi, I added this list because for visitors / interested testers it's more easy to find a "complete PC" that works with ReactOS - than collecting all separate informations on the separate Hardware sides (and then collecting components / cards to build a "ReactOS-PC" ..). --[[User:PeterK|PeterK]] 10:05, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
:::While this page is in good faith, we do not have enough testers or hardware support to test/list full systems. It is also simpler (and more cost-effective to testers) to interchange components for testing. --[[User:RideBMX|RideBMX]] 14:48, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
::::Okay, we have different points of view. Let me explain: Someone asks You which machine to buy to test ReactOS on real hardware instead of a Virtual Machine. What do You recommend ? A bunch of several hardware parts, a mainboard, a graphic card, network ... ? Hm, might be expensive, yes, and takes some time to assemble. Well, I payed 50 EUR for this (used) IBM PC on EBAY. From my point of view it's worth the experience. And there's one advantage: a "complete PC" like this IBM, or a DELL or FUJITSU (whatever You like ..), all these machines (as IBM S50, S51, M52, ..) are mostly built with exactly the same hardware, so a tester can be really sure that he can choose a "working ReactOS PC" .. Lateron I expect that ReactOS does / should support nearly all hardware - as MS Windows does - so this list then should really be obsolete .. --[[User:PeterK|PeterK]] 21:37, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
