It is perfectly possible (and common) to install GNU/Linux and Windows on the same system.

There are implementations of basic on GNU/Linux, but it would probably be better to learn a more generic programming language, that isn't normally tied to a particular platform.

I'm afraid we cannot convert your code for you. Also, we are unable to help you with learning another language if that is what you wish to do. There are large communities for many of the languages. They will be happy to help you and provide better help with programming than we ever could.

Unfortunately we cannot accept your registration at this time. If you are able to port your code to a free platform, then please do re-register.

Thankyou for your understanding.

ok, i'm intrested in converting my program to linux, but i have two problems:
1- my operating system is windows, i dont have linux.
is there any way to install linux beside my currently windows?

2- i dont know any programming language in linux. i know basic and visual basic. so, if i provide the source code, can you convert it into a linux operated language?

thanks for yor comment, i'm intrested in using linux, but 90% of my programs are in windows. i'll be happy if you help me to learn a linux-based programming language.

sincerely yours.

I'm evaluating the project you submitted for approval in Savannah.

Even though your project is Free Software it can not be hosted here.
We only host projects that can run on a free operating system (such as GNU/Linux).

We have adopted this policy because now that completely free operating systems exist, we do not want to encourage users of those systems to start using proprietary operating systems so that they can use your program.

If you are willing to maintain a version for free operating systems, which work as well as or better than other ports, you can then provide versions for non-free systems as well. The idea is that at no point should only-free users be at a disadvantage compared to users of proprietary software.

Your project should always work equally well in free systems as in any other version you provide; if you have some modules for non-free systems, you can delay their release until you have released the free operating system version.

If you accept this commitment then please state so and we can progress with the process.

Thank you for your understanding.

######### REGISTRATION DETAILS #########

Full Name:
Perham's Advanced XOR Encoder

System Group Name:

non-GNU software & documentation

GNU General Public License V2 or later

This program can Encode any file with XOR encoding, it uses a fake random algorithm for generating a key that equals File in size from a given password by user. Decoding process is just like encoding because of XOR, it uses the same algorithm for decoding.

it's written in VB 6.0 with a nice GUI.

Other Software Required:
Zeal Progressbar; that is free and can be provided with software.(its license allows me to)
if there is problem with this thing i can change it with normal windows progressbar that it's completly free
