Software projects

Platforms

Most of my software will be written in Python, which itself is cross-platform. My software is primarily for Linux/*BSD/unix, it shouldn't be too difficult to install on Mac OS X, if you are familiar with the terminal.

On Windows, there are quite many things that will not work easily. Users familiar with the terminal on Mac OS X/Linux/unix could use Cygwin. Notice: Don't throw away the installer, you'll need it to install dependencies of whatever you might install in the future.

You can always give Linux a try.

List of platforms (mostly unix)

I test my software on my own system and on some virtual machines. The software SHOULD work on Cygwin, but I obviously don't run any MS product myself. The virtual machines are x86-32 on VirtualBox and the host is an x86-64 PC server.

Tell me if you have any suggestions for a zero-cost OS that should run on an x86-32 VirtualBox and should run POSIX software (native, emulation, compatibility layer, etc).

You may also send me patches and such to improve portability (even for any system on the list), but I'd like to know what credits you want, and what you don't want.

If I don't have https for eternity

I have two subdomains dedicated for serving my site over http over TLS (https) with "invalid" certificates, just in case I can't afford to renew my main cert. and you really want to fetch something securely from my site.
You might want to do this as I distribute executable code, but it won't remove any malware I may insert. But if you trust me like a moron, go ahead...

On my eternal TLS subdomain my certificate is signed by Oskar Skog who happens to have the same website I have. It's not a self-signed certificate, I am my own root CA on that subdomain. You can find my root certificate on Github.
(I won't link to it, because you're so darned lazy that if you see a link you won't even bother to check where you're heading.) Make real sure you get it from my Github repository dedicated for serving that certificate.

And I also have a subdomain with a self-signed certificate just in case there's any problem installing my root CA. Do notice that self-signed certificates cannot prove the identity of a server!
