A release of fluxus for windows: fluxus-0.16-win32-i386-v2.zip
Which should run after unzipping – no need to install anything else. Most of the functionality is there, but you need to use alt-number keys for switching workspaces, and there is no load dialogue yet, or audio/osc/midi or fluxa.
A windows version of fluxus has quite a lot of uses, the present one being a game distribution method for the groworld project. The other, which is also very important to me, is making fluxus easier to use in a workshop context. I’ve had a lot of problems getting fluxus into places run by local government (e.g. libraries) who are managed by IT companies scared witless by bootable linux CD’s (let alone actually installing a new operating system!). For me, reaching people in such situations is more important than forcing the free software party line on the OS.
The purist in me would like to stick to Linux, obviously – but this seems to be a route towards Linux in similar cases (such as Pd). In this sense, I can’t really see any political difference between Windows and OSX, so I might as well work towards full cross platform support.
