Of course all of this would not be possible without the gorgeous works others already made available for us to use. The following list is definitely not sorted by the gratitude we feel towards those listed, but unfortunately somebody has to be first and somebody has to be last in any of these listings. The listing is also definitely not complete. We are stunned by what is possible and - even more so - what is possible for OpenSource software.
- We'd like to thank the FlightGear team for bringing us such a great flight simulation software, with everything that belongs to it, from FlightGear itself via TerraGear, FlightGear Scenery Designer to TaxiDraw.
- We'd also like to thank the GRASS team. We're not even through yet with all the possibilities GRASS gives for scenery digitalisation.
- Well, then there's thanks to all those developers making Linux and Cygwin possible. We could go on thanking John von Neumann, Konrad Zuse and even Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace for making computing possible...well, you see where this would lead ;-)
