You guys are awesome! Like stated many times before. My programming skills aren't amazing by any stretch of the imagination.
Okay here are my thoughts so far, based on both of ya'll's descriptions of your contributions (that doesn't seem like the correct word...).
FMC-I love the idea that it auto detects (or has the potential to) the type of operating system. However, I'd like to add it as a choice in the GUI as opposed to it just running. Maybe something like this.
[Let Installer make the best choice for me]
Later when GPU2 comes into play, it would be awesome to have your program detect whether the user has a compatible card for GPU2. We might be able to work something out with the creator of Envy (driver installer for ATI and NVIDIA cards) so we can install the correct driver needed for the video card.
So, in short, yes I love the idea, but I believe the GUI is needed for the future as Linux comes more into play as a main stream distro. Also, for those people who only want to use Linux to fold, I'd love for this program to be something they can install, click, input the information, and go.
dangerousHobo- Thanks a lot for the work on the GUI. Anything you want to do to make it look better is fine by me. As for the "alias" thing, I think you are talking about the name used for the FAH site correct? I know you wrote the config file for the Desktop shortcut in OCNix, do you think it would be possible to have the user's input their information in the GUI then save that information into a config file? This way the use would not have to mess with the terminal at all. I'm just throwing this idea around right now and it is not necessary at the moment, but I think it would be awesome.
I think it would be a good idea to hold off the Mac project for right now until we have the Linux one nailed down pretty good.
But one more thing before I ask ya'll for your continued help. I have a very Linux approach to programs. As in, I believe that they should be both free as in beer and free as in freedom. If you both agree (dangerousHobo seems to hold this idea as well seeing as he offers both his FAH-installer and his Perlmon for free) I'd love to have you on board for this project.
