Compact Discs are digital. LaserDiscs can be analog.

Audiophiles complain about music stored on digital media, its too bad Laserdiscs didn't catch on and too bad albums weren't released on Laserdisc, we'd have a much better analog source for music. Way less popping and hissing than vinyl.

I had no idea this existed, it is very cool and would make for a good learning experience. If I hadn't already posted I'd mod your post up..

But how about the feeling you'd get if you were a student and the code you wrote or modified actually made it into an OS that you could install and run on your own computer, and that thousands of others would also install and run.. and your teacher is the guy who maintains the project, so you should have a good chance of your code actually making it in.

I'm assuming by 'work on' he means the actual code of the OS.

Its impossible to do this with Windows, and Linux is already fairly feature complete. Maybe ReactOS has places where it could use some fairly simple code that would at the same time teach the students how to write code for an OS...

The more cordial the buyer's secretary, the greater the odds that the competition already has the order.

Working...
