So I wanted to use a piece of software written in C(++?).
As a user, I shouldn't really care what it's written in, except that when I want to use it on anything else but a Mac I have to build it myself... Confused | :confused:
I've seen that more often, although there's usually a Windows installer as well, but not this time.
Screw that, I'm not using a tool that's supposed to help me except it first makes me work for it.

I believe this is standard practice for everything ever written for Linux, but what's the idea behind having to build it yourself? Dead | X|
Why do the developers not simply build it for me (and thousands of others) and save me some trouble?
Why would a user ever want to build it himself? Unsure | :~
I'm sure "because we're 1337 and you're a n00b" isn't the only reason although it's the first that comes to mind Laugh | :laugh:
