@spacekookie hold up...
so they made a helper program... that is designed to I guess help automate some of the bits of programming or somethng...
but they say that basically that it's only for advanced users??? surely an advanced user doesn't NEED a helper program?!?
fucksake what a bunch of dickheads.
@Nine Realistically the helper is just to make things more convenient. Reduce time to install a complex program from half an hour (by hand) to however fast your computer can download, build and install it.
So I would argue beginners and advanced users alike have reason to use it both.
@spacekookie this is absolutely true. I mostly take exception with their sneering insistence that only "advanced" users can and should use it, like you pointed out.
