|Program||Will It Run?||Note|
|A piece of software||?|| First, look below and replace "game" with "my software" . If it is open source , why don't you TEST IT YOURSELF : |
Get the development VM , the software source code , compile in scratchbox ,
|My favorite PS3/PC game||NO !||
Minecraft : no, Quake 3 : luckily yes , other games: convince the developer !
|My favorite Web 2.0 / 1.0 App||?|| As long there is no Flash content , of course. Might be slow. Check out the mobile/HTML5 versions. |
facebook: yes , Google : yes , hulu : no , youtube: yes.
|Another operating system||?|| Open Source OS: That'll be a load of work. Don't do it alone. "I like to code my own one :"
The Pi has no BIOS , relies on binary blobs and closed-source
Mac OS X : never , RiscOS: WIP , Fedora 14: WIP , Debian 6 : yes , ArchLinux : yes , DOS: use qemu
|Windows||No||Windows runs only on x86 type computers , the Pi is ARM.|
|Windows 8||NO !||
|WINE||No||Sorry. WINE is x86 only. Anything else is a pipe dream , believe me.|
|Netflix||No|| Netflix uses proprietary technology which is not supported for Linux. There is |
help request against that online.
|Android||?||Very propable , but NOT Ice Cream Sandwich ! Remember : 256 MB RAM ?|
|Java||Yes||Might be *slow* . No idea about browser plugins.|
|Flash||No||You can try gnash (GNU Flash) and many other projects. |
They are NOT a drop-in replacement for Adobes official thing.
