Re: free PlayBook

I believe the offer is over. Of course if you submitted it ahead of the deadline and you are just fixing something as requested, you will still get the PB.

VirtualBpx cannot be used. There is a 30 day trial of Vmware Fusion available.

Re: free PlayBook

To my knowledge, VirtualBox has never been supported for the simulator. VMWare is the only supported means to run it. I believe this is because of graphics driver limitations.

The offer may happen again, it may not, but it's very unlikely anyone will hear about it before it's announced so trying to predict it is a likely a waste of time.

Wah!

Is the simulator good? I want a fre playbook. Who would announce this? It's a pain to make these apps and the recomple for playbook and then get no playbook.

Re: free PlayBook

The simulator is good. It's a bit of a pain having to use a non-free bit of software on a mac to use it, but there you go. You can get a 30 day trial of VMWare Fusion for the mac to try it out - I use this on my macbook air and it's fine.

In terms of keeping an eye on future freebies, I'd suggest following the developer blog in your favourite feed aggregator:

The way I see it you have three options:

- Theft

- Prostitution

- Selling organs

 

I guess you could work to raise the money, but who's really going to go down that route?
