Re: games on ROS

The list games that can be bundled with ROS boils down to one simple statement: those that somebody is willing to maintain in the source tree. I my understanding as of now it would be minesweeper, because it comes from Wine, and Solitaire and Spider because the developers are willing to maintain the...

Re: games on ROS

Freeware (and free games in general) are good to go, but don't even touch abandonwares with ROS, because from legal point of view, it does not exist. :!: Having some overzealous young lawyer suing ROS over some old game to make a himself a name is the least we all want. :evil: (I would also recommen...

Re: Drivers

Running it in restricted execution environment provided by VM is simpler and more secure. This presumes that you trust your VM. ;) Personally, I don't believe "looking at the code" can guarantee it's safe, especially when the code is huge. Looking at the code it definitely not enough, one have to u...

Re: FSF - priority-projects

Yes, I agree with you, the interpretation it a moot point. For myself, I read it as "GNU's is not (only) Unix" or "GNU's is not (only for/about) Unix". :geek:

Re: FSF - priority-projects

GNU was only meant to be a Unix Actually GNU's Not Unix :mrgreen: and many of GNU packages run happily on other platforms. Even the kernel, heart of the OS, was supposed to be different, but things did not happened this way. So we got a more conservative-one, rather than a revolutionary-one. Is it ...

Re: PC ROS Rigs - Real Hardware Testing (rig) - WIKI

I probably didn't express myself clearly-enough. I was hoping helping with testing/bug reports on similar hardware, but perhaps different environment. As for the laptops, they often use customised versions of common components and may expose some border cases (bugs). That's why many manufacturers st...
