If ROS is truly Windows compatible it should be able to run Euphoria, Perl, Python, Ruby, et al. without modification, right?
Correct. EVERYTHING should be able to run on ROS that runs on Linux in the end. Thats the goal.

Most people think of Linux as hard-to-use, and even though this is mostly not true, most people would not think of editing text files as a productive way to spend their time. In KDE they have a motto "if you have to touch a config file to change a setting, its a bug". With advances in udev hot/cold...

Viruses (technically Trojans) are generally not spread by OS problems (with the exception of defaulting to Admin in WinXP for user accounts). Viruses (Trojans) generally are spread through being downloaded and opened by the user. Worms though spread using OS vulnerabilities. Though since ROS won't h...

Right now? DirectX as well (HalfLife 2 lol). When I finish AP Computer Sciences (ew java...) I will need to use VS.Net for my other programming class. Everything else Linux does for me (if I put some effort into it I wouldn't even need DirectX, cause HL2 is supported in Cedega). The news of OpenGL w...

Actually just FYI: Linux doesn't identify any type of file based on either method unless its set to executable, and you try to execute it, then it will check if its an elf executable that it can run, an a.out executable, or a text file that starts with something that looks like #!/path/to/program/th...

Well designed software doesn't alter the registry (at least not without the user's permission, e.g. loading at startup) I mean the registry settings for the program, global and per user. I think thats one of the reasons why Windows slowly slows down the longer its used. Can we include 7-zip in the ...

Well I'm pretty sure Mono is gonna be getting more and more common as .Net get more popular. But right now there are 2 package managers (cause 2 people have ideas for them). Right now were both going to make a working version, then merge all the good stuff, and remove all the useless junk (that way ...

Well right now its annoying cause I'm having problems figuring out how to open another program from inside of C# (so i can open like 7-Zip to extract an archive), right now I'm just working around that and am using an already extracted version (the finally standalone version will download it from my...

Hey, I've also started writing a package manager for ROS (though its in C#, so it won't work till Mono does). At first I didn't intend for it to be a real package mananger (just a demonstration of what one would do to a single package). I'm planning on making it a complete working program (gonna tes...

Ok scratch the last part of my last comment (using QT and linux only), since I'm lazy and need to learn C#, and I've decided to do it in that, the format of the package I'm going to use is 7z (7-Zip, its GPL). So far I've made amazing progress since this is the first time I've even touched C#. REMEM...

Thats really weird, I thought OpenGL on windows just translated the commands into DirectX commands??? Good to see I didn't remember correctly! DirectX shouldn't be a huge issue, since Cedega (the important parts are LGPL) translates DirectX commands into OpenGL commands and the same method could be ...

Everyone I know hates the Fisher Price look (including the people that aren't computer literate), most everyone either turns it to 'classic mode' (pre-XP), or use something like Window Blinds and StyleXP to reskin the desktop (thanks to MS encrypting the theme dll file).
