Not so in Windows land. Been there, done that a few years ago with a
fairly simple Python/GTK application. I can't remember how much effort I
spent to provide "just working" binaries to make it usable by even the
most non-techie, lazy, ignorant, you name it, users around. Not
counting personal support via private mails, forums and mailing lists.

Most messages I got were insulting at best. However I did have Italian
translation, provided by some Linux user. :-)
