Can we please stop using our mailing list to bad mouth Wine, I do no
want to be tainted under the same brush.
Most of the ReactOS developers don't agree with your right wing view of
Wine, in fact many of us, myself included, have the oposite view.
Wine are a fanastic project from whom we owe a great deal.
Just because they choose to do things differently from your idealistic
way doesn't mean it's bad or wrong. They have their own interests to
protect and quite frankly that has nothing to do with us.
I agree with Aleksey, we must adopt their way of working in the hope of
rebuilding the bridges and additionally improving our credability within
the open source world. If this means offering ourselves to an external
audit, then so be it. We can't be a hobbiest project forever if we aim
to bring ReactOS to the public sector as a viable alternative to Windows.
ReactOS is getting to a stage now where we have to look at how the world
would best accept us as an entity. We need public support, we need
financial backing and we need to alter the project to make us more
appealing for such things. We should listen to Aleksey, I think he's
moving the project down the right path.
Your continual barage against Wine is no different than we used to
recieve from Mike, the only difference being, Mike has moved on now.
