  • The basic idea...

    "The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
    ...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source - www.opensource.org

    NOTE: THIS IS THE PRO EDITION. THERE WILL BE A 'BASIC' VERSION SOON THAT WILL BE MORE BASIC FOR PEOPLE TO GET TO GRIPS WITH. THE PRO VERSION REQUIRES THAT YOU DOWNLOAD CORES YOURSELF OR ELSE NO PROGRAMS OR EMULATORS WILL RUN!!!

    RetroArch is an open-source project that makes use of a powerful development interface called Libretro. Libretro is an interface that allows you to make cross-platform applications that can use rich features such as OpenGL, cross-platform camera support, location support, and more in the future.

    It comes with its own built-in collection of applications to provide you with a 'one-stop-shop' for entertainment.
