fsterman (519061) writes "Imagine a world in which we could use a Windows clone to cross-compile our applications in a continuous integration environment or run that one Windows program that a single customer needs for backwards compatibility. Think it's impossible? Well, the crazy talented ReactOS developers have an IndieGoGo campaign for a community edition and a donation gives you a vote on which apps the latest release should cover. They have make $20,000 of their $50,000 and they have a couple of few weeks left. Any other Slashdoter's want to help make Windows even MORE obsolete?"

+ - End of XP? Move to ReactOS->

Submitted by comparison
comparison (3640155) writes "Mentioned over ten times in previous Slashdot stories over the years, ReactOS still poses itself as an alternative to the Windows NT architecture. Some on the internet have given ReactOS a chance to become stable before XP's demise in order to succeed, including myself. Now that XP has been deprecated (or is being deprecated, depending on how you look at it), ReactOS is running an Indiegogo campaign to fund the applications and hardware users want most since ReactOS is still in alpha development. As of today, the campaign has 30 days left. I have never given ReactOS a try (I'm more qualified for beta testing than alpha testing), but I would like to see the project succeed; especially, since the video posted on the campaign promises that the operating system is free from the backdoors present in Microsoft's Windows NT. Did the ReactOS development team find some of those backdoors while reverse engineering Microsoft's version of the operating system, or can they just promise that based on ReactOS's open source code? Either way, here's your chance to support an open source project."

+ - ReactOS now comes with community edition->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "ReactOS aims to create a complete opensource version of Windows. That it works at all is amazing, that it works good is nothing short of a miracle. Not only pushing the boundaries of engineering, ReactOS is also looking to push opensource. Now also people that can't program can help with the ReactOS community. If you want to help out, they've got an indie gogo campaign https://www.indiegogo.com/proj..."

+ - ReactOS hopes to advance development via 'Community Edition'->

Submitted by BorisSkratchunkov
BorisSkratchunkov (642046) writes "The ReactOS project has announced a more community-driven development approach with the launch of an IndieGoGo campaign in which contributors can push for support for specific hardware and apps. Furthermore, they have announced the impending release of ReactOS 0.4, which contains (among other improvements) USB support for the first time ever, as well as a new explorer. With the recent retirement of Windows XP and the foibles of Windows 8, it is encouraging to see that the Windows platform might not be entirely dependent on Microsoft in the future."

For any position, you will need to be proficient in C with C++ proficiency being a major plus. C++ proficiency does not equate C proficiency so do not assume you have the latter if you have the former."

Formalities aside, you do need to prove yourself above and beyond the minimum requirements if you want to be considered for a position. Basically the project will require a demonstration that you know what you're doing. Having accepted patches would be a big plus in your favor, since it shows that you've at least figured out how to compile and test an operating system.
If you do qualify for a position, you'll be joining the very small and exclusive ranks of people who know how to do NT systems development. And believe us, those ranks are very, very small. And yes, you do need to be that good if you want to join those ranks.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at jobs@reactos.org and we'll get back to you as quickly as possible."
