You made a bold statement that only a company could release sources and
binarys for multiple versions of the viewer, i simply gave an example of
how this was not true. I never said non-linux people get stuffed i just
said that its difficult to manage large projects with patches and
multiple branches in visual studio alone. Thats why I who also work in
the IT industry and has to use VS at work uses these linux tools such as
patch and git/svn etc because it makes my life easier and quicker and
reduces mistakes therefore increasing my productivity.

Geeez people get so upset so quickly on this list.
