i don't want to get into "relic of commercial software thinking".

Im just trying to figure out a way to run puredata on a browser as a  
internet plugin.  (pd-plugin for mac/linux/windows) there's not even  
a commercial option to do such thing.

not being able to find it, ive been thinking of a way to make my  
patches available without installation problems.
just something people who don't care about pd but care about music  
narratives to go to a website click once and it works.

as for live performace/installation software or as a server pd is  
perfect. you can really create great experiences (such as netpd).

thks list  :)
