Now it's me...

wtf? Why should I care? If those users are not even willing to bend
their little finger to safe me from breaking my back attempting to
support their wretched pile of junk that is being deliberately trying
to boycott cross-platform compability, may they rot away, together with
any notion of software quality or sense of responsibility to care about
stuff you deem important that _might_ be left in the camp of
microslaves. And Microsoft itself, while I'm at it.

Being helpful and contributing to a gift society is all Good and Great,
but there's a line that has to be drawn to prevent it from collapsing:
Never, ever, let your actions be dictated by parasitary leeches. If you
want it done, do it. Let your actions tell others that you are standing
on the right side of that line, and you _will_ benefit from society. If
not, STFU or GTFO.
