True, it also doesn't install any DLL's in \WINDOWS\SYSTEM, and it
doesn't modify the registry.  This means that it's much less likely to
create conflicts with existing software, or make the system crash.

Clearly, we'll have to work on requiring reboots, corrupting the registry
and breaking other software compatability in the next release -- otherwise
Windows users won't take us seriously.

Thank you!   Also look over the docs, and tell me what I did wrong :)

Hmmm... I'd have to re-read the license (or you can) but I think in order
to distribute the binary version, you also need to distribute the source
on the same page.  (At least, that's normal with GNU licenses)

Aside from that, I think the license says you're free to distribute it...
but, you should probably read the license to make sure.
