Pit Tools isn't free. Try saving or printing something with the downloaded version :-)

This is the idea behind open source. The idea is to build a base concept, then make the source code freely available to the public. Then, others can add their own functionality to make the product work for them. Those without coding experience can contact the "source coders" and request the add-on or change. Or you can just use the app as it stands, whatever works for you.

Also, unless somebody wants to take hold of this project and do it completely on their own, I think the idea behind all this is to make the final product available for free.
(Somebody stop me if I'm wrong here! )

If any of you guys are seriously into the software dev community, then you know how easily open source products can take off or nosedive seriously. Perhaps some caution and analysis is in order before we get to carried away.

Default pit-software

Umm. I downloaded and am using the Pit-tools software right now... and I didn't pay for it. There is a link to download it right about the payment logo. Not sure if it is an evaluation version, but it didn't make any time signatures in the registary so I think it wont.

The one I downloaded won't let me save stuff. Try saving a setup or anything. I don't think it will work. If so do you mind sending me the link you downloaded it from lol?

I'm game for an open source app in c#. I normally do vb.net but can do c# also. The pocket pc version should be quite simple as vs.net contains pocket pc compiler and porting code is sometimes just a cut and paste from the win32 app. Also with the release of mono it can run un almost any platform.

I recommend using xml to store data so the pocket pc and win32/etc will be able to read and transfer data easily.

Let's setup a sourceforge project, layout the different classes needed and we'll divvy up the tasks and get this running.

Default Help!!!!! ...... maybe :P

Hi all,
I'm currently a computer science student. This forum has help me alot in the past (including the ppl here) so in return, i like to help out with this software development to benifit the rest. As for language coding, I can use a number of them. This include c#, C++, java, xhtml, xml, vb, vb.net, fortran, cobal, perl and php.

Like i said, i like to contibute to this project but i'm a student, so my studies will come first. but i can, i like to dedicate as much of my available time to this software development.

note: design software first. it's the most crucial part that holds the whole software and it's spectrum together.
