Hi! Here's a noob. One question: I understand that the Warpinator application for the cell phone is Open Source Software, but how do I know that the developer has not put "other things" on it when they had compiled? Not that I disparage the project or the developer. I love the project and congratulate everyone who made it possible. But what I say goes beyond this project, but all open source pre-compiler software, be it .apk or .deb or .appimage. How can I know, or what certainty gives me that when installing the pre-compiled one it does not bring "other things"? Still, beyond this question, I much prefer FOSS than proprietary software. Thank you very much to all and greetings!!

Hi Ezee1015

Please don't install something unless you can read the source code, or trust the dev. But, it's got Clems OK and he's never let me down.

Best say 'yet'. :lol:

Yes, I know that I can read the code, but who can know that the developer don't put other things when he/she compiled it? This is my cuestion. But, how i said in my last post, this is not I disparage the project or the developer. I love the project and congratulate everyone who made it possible, but what I say goes beyond this project, but all free and/or open source pre-compiler software.

It's those computer chips in cctv, automobiles and airplanes that worry me.

That's why I'm building an underground bunker with no connection to the outside world at all.

You can't be too careful I say.

It's a valid question, please post it as a new topic. This is an announcement topic, that means it's not the best place to get questions answered. Thanks!

Having not had another machine to use Warpinator with, it's nice to put it through its paces with my Android phone now :)
