List of apps for ROS testing

Post by Haos »

Asked by Aleksey, I`m working on a set of applications for regular ROS testing. This is still a preliminary list, at most, I`ll appreciate every input and opinion here. The requirements are simple. Apps must be Win32 native, free to use (opesource, freeware, shareware), possibly reaching different aspects of OS, single task oriented and not too big. This is why i`m reluctant to include OpenOffice pack, as it would require not only a load of space but also much more time even for the basic tests. Anyways, here it goes:

- Audio:
1. Foobar2000 0.9.4.2

- Document reading/manipulation
1. Abiword 2.4.6 with import/export plugins
2. Sumatra PDF
3. Scite 1.7,2
4. Xemacs 21.4.20

- Disk/File operations
1. Contig Power Defragmenter (with GUI)
2. Pagedefrag
3. TotalCommander 6.56
4. 7z v4.42

- Image
1. Irfanview 3.98
2. Inkscape 0.45.1
3. GIMP 2.2.17 (GTK+ 2.10.13)

- Internet
1. FF 1.5
2. MIRC 6.21

- Programming
1. CodeBlocks 1.0rc2
2. Python 2.5.1

- System information/utilites
1. CpuZ
2. CrystalCPUID
3. ProcessExplorer
4. Speedfan 4.32
5. SUN Java runtime 1.6.0.2

- Video
1. GSpot
2. MPlayer
3. Media Player Classic
4. QuicktimeLITE 1.1.1
4. VirtualDUB 1.6.19

MingW assumed? If it still does... BB on ROS!
More ReactOS, please!

I'm just thinking the following freeware apps maybe could be tested?
Audio/Video: Quick Time
Image editing: Helicon Filter Free
Internet: Thunderbird
And maybe Stellarium would be good at testing graphics and clock sync in programs?

Just thinking aloud.

V Editing:
VirtualDub

A Editing:
Audacity

Photos:
GIMP2

WAMP:
WAMP5 http://www.wampserver.com/en/
XAMPP http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html

Winamp? somewhat cow application.

Do not suggest yourself by my picks. We dont need redundancy, but best possible coverage. This is we dont need 5 filemanagers, audioplayers, etc. Try to think of something new.

@forart

As Foxit is not yet working on ROS, i`ll substitute it with SumatraPDF. Still, Foxit is faster at rendering and using less memory, altough i like Sumatra for its compactness. XPDF cannot be used (no win32 native bins).

I`m also dropping all the tools from already covered areas, as i said, we dont need redundancy... different things guys, please.

@artguy10

I`m adding Quicktime to Video and Stellarium to Image.

@.aart3k

I`ll update the JAVA pkg. GIMP is going to be included temporarily, untill i`ll get a better raster graphics editor (anything free and not needing GTK will do fine). Virtualdub is placed on the reserve list.

What exactly are you looking for in the raster graphics editor? Picasa is free, fast, organizes photos and does some basic editing. GIMP is pretty good at doing editing and some graphics creation. Helicon Filter Free is good at optimizing all different areas of a picture.

Would any of these help with testing apps?

Adobe acrobat for PDF and ebooks,
zipgenius or orther zip application,
VirtualBox to test ability of virtualizing other OSs,
TrendMicro spyware or virus check or some other shareware/freeware app to test ability of system-scanning programs and live protection (unless ReactOS doesn't get viruses?)
Google Earth can test OpenGL and DirectX
YSFlight can test 3D graphics from CPU, OpenGL, and DirectX
BricoPack Crystal Clear to test ablity of software which modifies system files (once themes are supported.

KDE Kexi is big but it could chceck how we can deal with QT.
Daemon Tools !

Yeah, Daemon tools definitely. It should be interesting to see if our SCSI support can deal with it.

Opera is also a good choice once you start doing network testing again.

Pixel Image editor should be a good way to test Photoshop-like programs. It's shareware, but it runs.

@artguy10

I`m looking for Photshop/PSP replacement. I dont like GIMP because of GTK:( and bad experience with it under Win32.

Adobe - we already have PDF viewers
Zipgenius - 7z is more than enough
VirtualBox - we dont even support it for running ROS...

Rest is way too premature, although i`m curious how will ROS act against spyware/adware.

@.aart3k

Kexi: i expect it to crawl in emulation, not speaking of mem usage, if its going to run at all. Secondly, i`m not an expert with KDE and would require help with it. DaemonTools - yes. Need MOAR apps.

Like I said, Pixel is very similar to Photoshop (and is shareware; you can use it, but it watermarks the images). Helicon Filter is Freeware/Shareware and while not like Photoshop, it is excellent for photo editing. Krita is another free option http://www.koffice.org/krita/ You should check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison ... cs_editors

@Haos: Kexi offers native windows version, prepackaged with reqiured kde libs etc, installation is simple as in firefox.

FAR must be added to test if console works properly.

@Haos: Sometimes VB can't even run Windows NT4 ... Guess that disqualifies ROS to run on it?
