    Yesterday, I downloaded the source code for MoonShell 1.71. Upon opening it up, I saw that there were no makefiles. Intrigued, I sent an email to Moonlight.

    So... when he said the development would stop a certain date, he wasn't kidding...

    Yeah... I tried to "buy" RVDS, and couldn't find it anywhere, though.

    It's an official ARM compiler that costs s***loads of money. It's comparable to SDT, the compiler used to make PocketNES, GoomBA, etc.

    Wonder why it costs so much, and he knew the trail would expire, wonder why he did that, was the older moonshells used with RVDS also?

    It seems to me that Moonlight is just saying that Moonshell development won't continue in RVDS. Not that moonshell will be dead.

    It doesn't make sense that the only version of moonshell built with RVDS would be the latest, but that devel would stop if RVDS is not available.

    Might this just be a misunderstanding of Moonlight's english?

    Why not use the trial on a different computer?
