    Bok, Guru, you all up for either one of these? If nothing else, just for the fun of it.

    I've been primed for POGS since they ran out of work. I plan for a big push once they have work available. I won't be doing any WCG. I am involved in a lot of projects but this is one I won't support.
    I'm having fun!!! I'm just not sure if it's net fun or gross fun.

    I really shouldn't have to ask if you're going to state that... but, Why?

    This is one of the few projects I can A) run on almost all my Androids (except for one, Android version is likely the reason it won't run), and B) it runs in a reasonable amount of time on my Androids.

    POGS has a weird bug that makes it think it needs 950+mb free to run. That's an issue for some of my devices that could otherwise run it just fine. Short of getting involved in rooting, there's no way around it.

    1. It's not run by IBM. It's their nonprofit. Arguably semantics, but still the fact of the matter.

    2. It's the projects that matter which are not IBM.

    It may be their none profit but don't think for a second they aren't using the division to make a profit. It is run by IBM employees. There are plenty of projects that don't rely on WCG and I will support those projects.
