The forum has been plagued with a host of dummy registrations by bots. These registrations include web links in the user profile so that when search engines crawl the site they will see the links.

Your MSO is stunning but as I only run Linux, I wonder if you are planning to do the port any time soon?
If yes, be sure I will buy the your QA100 instead of the Bitscope BS10.

Thanks.

No, we don't plan to port anytime soon. Sorry about that.

See http://losingcontext.com.../look-at-them-apples.jpg

The software could be much more portable. Mac OS X's Darwin layer is certified SUSv3 UNIX. Linux LSB-3 (or higher) matches SUSv3 UNIX. Code to those interfaces. Using MacPorts ( http://www.macports.org/ ), I can install all needed USB drivers. All you need to supply is the "C" code and the JNI connectors, then write your UI in Java.

Portability is doable. And, you get the sales from Linux and Mac users. Every percentage in sales counts, and if you write portable software, you are getting those few extra percentage points for free.

My employer paid extra to get me a Mac. My argument for it was that because it's UNIX, I can develop my portable server software more efficiently than on Windows, or Linux. And, yes, it works! My server software works on Linux, Mac, and Windows (built using MinGW).

Stay tuned, there is some stuff happening here. No idea on schedules, but hopefully this 3rd party will be able to reveal more details soon here on the forum. We are keen to help as much as possible here.

A couple questions:

1) Are there any updates on this front (Linux and/or Mac ports via "3rd party")?
2) In general, are there plans/timelines for a) releasing documentation for interfacing w/ the QA100 via USB, b) providing an API to do so, or c) providing any APIs beyond interpreter plugins (even Windows only)? Just wondering if community-produced tools might ever be possible.

Thanks!

There is a guy that has started an effort porting to Sigrok which is a multi-platform logic analyzer that is adding support for analog signals, but I have not heard status from him lately. And we are open to helping folks with the protocol. Maybe what we should do here is put together a minimal windows app with source that can talk to the scope (no graphics) and let folks use that as a launching point for their own efforts.

Anybody know if the QA100 software runs under Wine? I run Ubuntu and MacOSX and use Wine on both to run a bunch of Windows-only apps for embedded development. Wine is a simple solution and free to use.

VirtualBox and Wine are not real solutions.
For instance, they are only useful on x86 platforms.
True cross-platform software would allow for wider and innovative uses.
I would so buy a QA100 if it could be used with a Pandora Whistle
