This might create a ‘shit-storm’, hope not , i’m ready for it anyway.
I’d rather post it here, than in the post i picked it up, + i have the bonus of posting in the No Judgement Category.
Please do not keep the myth alive, in the Maslow Forum, that Linux needs to be learned.
You install it and use it, same as Win$ or Mac$$. (Myth ~12 years outdated.)
For MaslowCNC Win$ has the advantage that with the ‘portable version of GC’ you don’t have to worry about getting kivy or python installed and run. On Mac$$ you are slightly more challenged. For Linux it’s well documented and tested on various distros. Copy and Paste gets CG running.
My Friend Mohamed often comes with 2 of his kids, 9 and 12, and it took them less then 5 minutes to figure out that my browser is Firefox and how to start yoobooze and watch Shaun the Sheep. They were faster then me to turn the language to Arabic then i was to turn it back to english.
That Linux has tools under the hood, for example (awk), with a one line terminal command to move your entire g-code 200 to the left and 100 up, is nothing anyone has to learn. It’s good to have though… If you feel like it.
From the hardware side, you just need to take a look of how much of the resources are spent on calling home, and how much is left for you to get your job done. I’m not the first to analyse this with for example Wireshark.
MaslowCNC started open-source and cross (3) platforms and i would love to see it remain that way.
