This might be actually quite useful poll. I hope it will tell us important thinks like for which distributions should we package, write docs etc.

So: Everyone please vote, so we have a representative statistics Very Happy

For me, I'm an Arch Linux fan, but I also develop on Debian (at work, unfortunately not U++ Confused ).

Hi,

I had to answer 'Windows', although I wish it could be otherwise. However, part of getting any change on that answer is to have a well working U++ port on each platform. So, U++ is in fact my survival plan in the changing world of APIs and platforms. I constantly compile and test my software products on Kubuntu Linux too, just to make sure I have written portable U++ apps.

Best regards,

Tom

FYI,
I got Slitaz ( http://www.slitaz.org/ ), a 30mb Linux distribution that runs from pendrives, CDs and HDs with minimal RAM usage to run TheIde. Razz

I haven't build any upp application in it because it still requires to set up the paths in TheIde.
But it runs and could be a viable portable U++.

Here's how I done:
1) Downloaded the latest Slitaz ISO.
2) Ran it in VirtualBox.
3) Downloaded TheIDe and Upp .deb packages.
4) Used Slitaz's package manager to convert the debian packages to its own format: # tazpkg convert <packagename>.deb
5) Installed the packages: tazpkg install <packagename>.tazpkg

At this point one could remaster Slitaz and build a new ISO with U++ in it following Slitaz manual. Then one could write this ISO to pendrives or CDs and work with U++ everywhere.

Enjoy!

It might be worth mentioning Gentoo Linux and its derivatives as an entry for the poll, since it is often used by developers and you might find several votes for it.

I use Funtoo Linux, a Gentoo derivative for my investigations on U++ at home.

At work I also use Fedora, and I'm thinking about pushing U++ for embedded development, I'll let you know how it goes.

I am mainly using Windows 7, simply because the result of my work is win32 executable, but I have debian installed in wmware and often I do work in it on the same codebase, as our backend is running linux...

I'm currently on Xubuntu.

I'd like to see U++ support at least:
+ MS Windows (.EXE setup already does an excellent job) - Most customers use it

+ Mac OS X - Again, some customers think different Laughing

+ Debian - The Universal OS Smile

+ *buntu - Pretty much the Linux standard in Desktops and Workstations nowadays

+ RPM distros (Mandriva / OpenSUSE / Fedora) - Those guys can't handle *.deb

+ Slackware .tar.gz packages - Same as above

+ Gentoo - Developers use it as someone said

+ Arch Linux - I like it too. It seems U++ already works through PKGBUILDs Very Happy

I think those are the main distros. Distros derived from them already support the same packages.

Of course targeting (cross-compiling to) Android / iOS / other mobile OSes is welcome.

I do most coding on MS windows because the debugger works far better with Windows+MSC then Linux+GCC. Otherwise I would prefer using Ubuntu.

I develop my apps on Fedora Linux and when needed, compile the end user Windows apps with wine (I never leave linux Smile )

For debugging, I use ddd since I never managed to have correct debugging with Theide (but I haven't tried since a long time)

Interesting. I've been wanting to try Fedora 16, but didn't find any suitable U++ rpm packages. How did you install it?

Also, how do you build it under wine? You just download U++ for Windows and Mingw and it works in wine?

If I get wine to work this well I might dump Windows completely. Very Happy

There is a spec file in svn... I guess that with some minimal tweaking you could use it to build rpm package on your fedora. Or you can always compile it from source code, the old way Smile (Ask in separate thread, if you are feeling adventurous Wink )

Yes, it works just like that Smile I use it this way in Arch Linux too. Also, with a bit of research and tweaking, it should be possible to use mingw to cross-compile directly from the linux version of theide... but most people use the first method, it is just easier Smile

Overall, I am pleasantly surprised that Win is only 56%... Smile

I compile in wine using MSV5 express edition : search for 'winetricks' in the forum, all is trivial to install (easier than on win)

Hi,

I'm using Linux Mint. Nice distrib Wink

Mainly the main (gnome) edition, but I have also the XFCE and LMDE editions on others computers...

I never use Windows, unless I have something that I cannot test under wine.

For U++, I use dolric-rce/upp-nightly/ubuntu in my sources.list.

Mainly MS Windows, but also Fedora some times. Because I think of Fedora as a promising OS.
