The Transterpreter Project

Concurrency, everywhere.


Novel software distribution mechanisms

Brainstorm of the moment:

To increase the number of Transterpreter installations in the world, all we have to do is write a Windows virus. That virus does two things:

  1. It downloads and installs the Transterpreter.
  2. It propagates itself.

I suppose, if we wanted to be swish, we could update any previous or existing installations...

However, we're kinda busy at the moment, and I suspect that writing a virus to install software is generally rude. And probably illegal. And really doesn't seem terribly ethical, or any of a host of other things. It's a funny thought, though. :)
