    I am not a developer by any means , but would love to learn MONO and porting Windows Software to Linux .
    With MONO all that is needed is source code for porting .
    Would love to see a Linux EFILive Distro , a small desktop OS just for EFILive , with EFILive theme and Icons .

    Here is a cool thing SuSE is doing and this is why I said a EFILive Distro is not a pipe dream it could be done easily :http://cornelius-schumacher.de/marbleinabox.html
    SuSE Studio , allows a customized OS down loadable ISO image , try that with Win7 .

    If you want to get a head start, you can see/study the messages sent to/from the EFILive_Hapi application in the "Trace" section.

    Let's see how it goes.

    Glad to see there is some thought being given to the linux (open source?) world!

    I'd love to do some development, but unless you want it written in perl, I'm probably not your guy. I've got a fair bit of experience with a few different distro's though. I'd be open to testing!

    I keep hinting , I really don't want the source code (I know it probably scares someone when that is brought up) , I know that that is the heart of the software , but I keep showing how MONO could be used to port to Linux .

    Wouldn't Mono only be useful if EFILive was developed on the .NET framework? EFILive is written in Delphi. There was a Linux version of Delphi called Kylix but we have not gone down that path as it seems Embacadero are not planning on supporting it.

    Long term, I'd rather see EFILive re-written Linux in C.

    regards

    Linux has GNU , GCC C/C++ compilers built in .
    Ah , I see about Delphi , did some looking , sucks .
    What about Pascal ? http://www.freepascal.org/
    Don't know why I thought EFILive was .NET .

    Paul,

    Have you seen git the distributed version control system...?

    I have been using git for the past 6+ months for version control in my driver/kernel projects and for other user space app projects...

    It was a little daunting at first in a multi-developer environment (locally at work with my 15+ linux driver peers, and publically with the linux kernel community)... but I found it to be very powerful... its strengths are in its ability to do branching, merging and rebasing (this really blows me away).

    When debugging my driver, I create a new branch, I do my edits/compiles/tests/commits... then I merge this branch back into my local branch for this driver (I have separate branches for the various drivers)... then if my peers made intermediate changes, I pull their changes from their trees into mine, I rebase my changes on theirs, and now I have mine/everyone's changes... all done with a few simple command lines.

    I'm sure that for a smaller developer headcount, git would be very easy/quick to learn/apply.

    I've not used git, but I used sccs and cvs back when I was developing on UNIX. I do like version control systems and I will be moving the V8 code into some form of version control before too long.
