My name is Roman Högg (RomanH) and I have occasionally posted to this
mailing list and the web site forum in the past for a variety of reasons.
(offering/asking for help, submitting the Swiss German keyboard layout,
etc.) I now contact you for something completely different.
Together with the Helsinki School of Economics, Luleå University of
Technology, Nokia and IBM Business Services, our institute (
http://www.mcm.unisg.ch ) is conducting a study called
"Collabora-tion4Innovation (C4I)". The study is funded by the European
Commission and is examining the im-pact of diversity within teams on
factors such as innovation, creativity and productivity. By diversity we
mean things like cultural diversity, different skills, different
educational backgrounds, etc.
In the first phase of the project we are currently conducting a number of
case studies from a variety of areas. The goal is to find the "state of
the art" and later define areas in which further research is needed (e.g.
organisational aspects such as process design, improving collaboration
technologies, etc.) Since ReactOS is - as far as I can see - developed by
a pretty diverse set of people (developers from different countries,
probably with different skills and non-developers/users/testers that try
to improve the software in whatever way they can) I wanted to ask whether
it would be possible to conduct a "Reac-tOS Case Study". I think it would
be nice to not only have companies in the case studies. If you agree to
this idea, I would like to conduct interviews with 2-3 persons of you (in
English or German, most likely via phone). Each interview would last
between 45 minutes and 1,5h maximum. (or I could send the
questionnaire/interview guide in advance and we would only discuss the
more open questions over the phone). After the interviews I would condense
everything into a 3-4 page description of the project and the aspect of
diversity. You would then get that text and could tell me whether you
agree with it or whether I would have to change things. Nothing will be
published without your consent! Unfortunately I can't offer you any money
for the collaboration, but I think the study will give the project some
additional promotion and, if you want to, you may of course use my text
for documenta-tion purposes.
Please let me know what you think and thank you very much!!!

everyone have notice ReactOS website, svn, mailing list, went down.
The svn and web server was never down the problem was the
DNS server whent down by hardware failour and it took time
getting it back online again. Longer that we did expect.
I have some problems with ReactOS. Today, I've tried to
install the latest stable release ("0.2.x") to my old DOS
gaming computer. The computer booted the installer, I set
the preferences of the system, I formatted the hard disk,
the file copying was successfull. At the end of the
installation, the installer ordered me to remove all media,
so I removed the install CD. The last screen said that the
installer is checking the files on the hard disk, and when
it's done, the system will reboot automatically. But
something is wrong: the progress indicator at the bottom of
the screen said: "Flushing cache", and my machine locked up
completely. After I did a hard reset, the bootloader said:
"Disk error". I've tried to reinstall ReactOS about 3 times,
but the installer always locked up at the last screen.
The system is:
CPU: Pentium II (with MMX), 300 MHz
RAM: 64 Mb
Graphics card: S3 Trio64
Hard disk: Quantum Fireball, 540 Mb
Later, I've created a ReactOS LiveCD. It boots up corretly,
but the system is weird: when I drag an icon in the
explorer, then I release the mouse button, I get a
completely empty Blue Screen of Death. I've also tried to
set the video preferences, so I've opened up the controll panel,
then opened up the screen preferences. But when I clicked in
the last tab, the system closed the window. When I open an
explorer window, the content of the window is messed up. But
when I drag the window to a different location, the content
is displayed correctly.
What can I do now?
