That's a big bummer... :-(

As I said earlier: the main project website at http://bearnol.is-a-geek.com/wanless2/ should clearly state that this project is for Linux only.

Except that it also supports OSX...

http://bearnol.is-a-geek.com/wanless2/apps.php

Will you go to all the Win-only projects and ask them to make a similar declaration?


I would if pushing Windows was one of their objectives and wasn't actually stating that as part of the project goals....

Not just that, but change its agenda as well as it is clearly NOT just for advancing mathematics...

Though please note I still have no immediate plans for a Windows app. [I'm on something of a crusade to promote Linux/OS X still too! :))) ]


bearnol, have you reconsidered the Windows application or should you actually add this statement as the third agenda of the project right after? :
1)find factors of P2203
2)prove a certain type of complexity of the algorithm through the analysis of the number of times each factor is found depending on its number of digits.

I honestly don't know how serious to take this project if it is unwilling to accept support over something so silly.

well there is the vboxheadless to run linux on a windows system
there are 4 known projects using the vm now
care to give it a shot, the app will still run under your linux pref.
if you talk to the admins over at t4t I'm sure they can help you along with dave and rom.
seems like more and more projects are going to a vm type app.
thanks.


I think his quest is more to force people to become somewhat familiar with Linux itself rather than making the work on the app easier. Some people feel that everyone should switch to Linux even though other operating systems suit them just fine. So, this project pretty much forces you to support other OS's if you want to support the project. Quite frankly, I don't see it attracting that many people to Linux but rather turning more people away from this project. After all, it isn't like it is finding cures or solving any humanitarian problems. It is just another math project. I only attach it when I'm running a Linux VM for some other purpose and that is IF I remember to attach to the project at all...
