How do you suggest encouraging a company to change, which bought off the DOJ and continues to lobby against user rights in as many countries as it can?

What would we do to encourage them that hasn't already been tried?

The real problem is that the accusations against RMS were largely unsubstantiated, and exaggerated to try to stifle his participation in an event created by his own organisation. Meanwhile, Red Hat has a code of conduct, but its owners still won't apologise for their active role in the Holocaust (While Bayer apologised, IBM has not.) I don't think double standards can get much worse than that, the world is pretty much upside down at this point.

Hi! I'm Ada aka Shino1, a visual artist, writer and amateur gamedev/modder from Poland. I work on starting a career in game industry and I love free software, so I thought that contributing to SuperTux (and poerhaps SuperTuxKart) could be a great way to 'get my feet wet' while helping out a project I love.

Hello,

I'm fdroidiordf and as my name suggest, I'm a great fan of the FLOSS-App-Store for Android, FDroid.
I'm also a great fan of other FLOSS things like OS's, games (SuperTux, SuperTuxKart etc.) and other software.

Sorry for the delayed approvals, but we get a lot of spam right now that is difficult to distinguish from these introduction posts. If you are not approved within a week please try again as the post might have been accidentally disapproved together with a lot of spam.

Welcome Nick. Are you working on any game projects?

Welcome Shino1. My oldest would appreciate more Super Tux development. He told me he got to the end and it said "to be continued".

Welcome fdroidiordf. You couldn't pick an easier name to spell. :) fluffrabbit is trying to encourage more mobile development posts. Are you working on any games?

Indeed! Threads here and here. The current main technical challenge is mobile development using only free software tools, which I am talking about here.

I'd be encouraging mobile development as well if mobile was actually a valid platform for computing, i.e. usable without any proprietary SW (and preferably HW as well).

I had an imaginary conversation last night with someone from this forum who said the same thing. To which I argued that it is a valid computation platform due to its power and ease of use. Is Microsoft Visual Studio not a valid IDE because it's proprietary? Of course it's valid, as are the dominant mobile OS's. But now we might be getting slightly OT.

Welcome rubenwardy. I believe I've seen you on the minetest forums. My kids used to play it all the time. They have decreased their play of it in the recent year. Any particular type of game you want to make?

Nice! I played Stronghold HD, the Stronghold Crusaders, and Stronghold Legends -- and I loved them all. The great graphics are going to be a challenge to make, as each unit interactively fights.

I have no experience in modelling or animation. I'd probably have to find a friend to do that. So, it will be 2d billboards to begin with

Welcome Sommejul. I've played SuperTuxKart at various times but never for very long. I was surprised by how much is in the game.
