Hows it going,
I hope i haven't over stepped the mark with  this?
I'm just curious to find out who is out there and what people are doing and using.

Thanks
Derry

Thanks very much for everyones response so far.

I think its quite interesting that sourceforge only report one developer but over week 5 people already tick the box as a developer?

Could i ask how involved you are in developing?

Also I totally think someone is lying!

There is surely someone out there who doesn't know where they are!?!

Thanks again,
Derry

I have not responded to the poll yet, but as regards developers it is open to interpretation.  They could be a developer working on their own LMCE system, they could be a developer as a profession but not currently working on the LMCE platform, they could be a developer working on one of the other platforms listed, they could be a plutohome developer, or they could be a LMCE developer not listed on sourceforge or they could be telling porkies  ;D ;D

I guess the poll could regarding developer status could have been more specific  ;)

Yea, I feel like a twat now!

I was actually referring to LinuxMCE.

I thought it was obvious but I should have made it clear!

Thanks,
Der

Hi,

Well we're not listed on source forge and we're a developer. We've been working with Pluto nearly 3 years now and now lmce. We're developing a full installed service/product around lmce targeted at non technical users in Europe. We're based in the UK and we plan to start early customer trials in November. Some elements of our service/product will not be open source (our UI and some enhancements that only have a purpose if you take our service for example) but in many other areas we will be contributing code and improvements.

Anyway its great to see such an active community building around lmce.

Hello Andrew,
I come from the pharma industry and I quite used to writing procedures, technical reports and general technical writing.

I have been looking at some of the wiki and see that there is a clear gap between what is on Pluto and LMCE.
Is there an activity going on currently to being them in line or at least to the same standard?

for example if I was to receive a good list of what is needed to set up a system ie core and md plus basic automation stuff. I could generate a nice pretty presentation around that information for people to get an idea as to what is involved in start up lmce. I've never used flash or any thing like that but the wiki is quite poor at the moment.

And from my prospective (not having a clue) the first think I wanted to know was what h/w was needed and how long it would take to set up.  I found it quite difficult to get that information.

Ok... This is turning into a rant so I'm going to stop cause i believe the work that is going on here is great and more importantly the work in the back ground seams to be huge!

Thanks for your input,

Der

It'd be nice just to see some screen-shots of your UI. Do you have some public information?

Well I think it will need a week or two more work before we'd be happy to share what we're upto with the UI. But I will definitely post some here at that time... and there will be information on our Web site to that I will be able to point you at too.

Our product/service is built on top of lmce-0704 and has not launched here in the UK yet.

You can see our current 'teaser site' here http://www.dianemo.co.uk

Dianemo is the name of our product/service that will be professionally installed by an installer and is targeted at the broad middle income home market. So bare that in mind when browsing the web site - we are not aiming this at a technical audience at all :-)

Hi,

Sorry for the slow reply!

Well I think as ever with a public Wiki you just have to jump in and get involved and start making the improvements you feel are needed. The lmce community needs all kinds of expertise and for sure good quality technical writing is of great value here. As to a comparison between Pluto and lmce I would say that the latter has more momentum and it is certainly where we see our efforts going.

All the best.
