    New poll on ecomstation.ru site:

    What is the height of RPM barrier?


    The goal of the poll - investigate the attitude of the users to RPM installer for eComStation.

    (Don't forget input anti-spam 6-digits CODE: below the list of answers on the page of voting)

    Large runtimes were packed to RPM format (Odin, Qt4 runtime).

    The development of this runtimes/libraries required huge financial resources.

    Some users report that it's not easy to install programs packed to RPM.

    (the user must download RPM stuff, learn RPM, contact the maintainers of RPM

    to complete the installation, os2world.com forum -- http://www.os2world.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,63/topic,3701.msg21709/topicseen,1/#new )

    As result less users can install new

    versions of the runtimes. The resources were spent,

    but not all users can test the results.

    Previous versions of the runtimes were packed to WarpIn

    and installation was easy and fast.

    Seems that RPM is a barrier for the users.

    Attention! We are going publish all comments (All emails will be hidden).

    What is the height of RPM barrier?

    * it's not a barrier

    * 1 cm, 5 cm, I can jump over

    * 5 meters, I can't overcome the barrier, please pack to WarpIn format
