Just my opinion...
now, what freshmeat is or isn't I am not sure... but i personally do not want to start seeing 10,000 crappy VisualBasic programs pop up on here. I personally would like to think of freshmeat as a collecection of software that i can actually find usefull... preferably under the GPL or similar licence, and in a language that is easily ported... I think that freshmeat should remain a software listing of unix utilities and programs, and possibly other things such as BeOS apps... but only if the source is avaliable. I find no use in closed source, or extreamly limited source applications.... i like my free beer and free speach.
works on slack7
Compiles and works great on Slackware 7.... and to think., i was really missing out by running redhat. This makes my switch well worth it =) (well... that, and TGZs are just easier than RPMs)
