A long, long time ago – 1999/06/03 – I was brave enough to try (and succeed!) at getting Max Reason’s XBasic running on Linux (Red Hat 5.1, to be precise). I remember thinking it was cool to see my name on someone else’s website when he thanked me. I didn’t even think about it at the time, but this is probably the first time I was able to contribute something back to a free software project.
It seem Max’s site has gone down recently, but here’s the wayback machine link.
(I’d just like to award Max’s parents the “best name evar” award – I think Max Reason even beats out Max Power, particularly for an engineer)
