What would I be missing if I purchased the IRIS but only have a Linux box and an Android Tablet as computers?
The idea of running Mission Planner under Wine / Mono is unappealing as its a half baked solution with its own set of problems. I don't own a Windows box, but have several Linux (Fedora 19/20) boxes.
Can command line under Linux provide a replacement for MP, at least at some minimal level? Are there any utilities available that in some combination (scripting) can provide what MP provides?
BTW - I'm an EE / professional software developer strictly Linux for the last 14 years.
PS - Any plans to rewrite MP as a web app so it can run under any O/S via a browser?
Thank you for your response.
This brings up another issue. I've read that PixHawk, which IRIS has, is the future development direction in hardware. Is there a similar clearly visible "direction" for the development of the software side? Is there an FAQ of some other source that can provide the big picture of where diydrones is generally headed via software?
