Then why not help us get deb/rpm support into setup.exe rather than just
complaining that we don't understand.

This HAS been covered. Many times. It's in the archives. RPM as static
port is *not good enough*. Neither is dpkg. As a userland tool for
building packages, yes, but thats a different story.


There are 100 times more Linux developpers than $Windows developpers.
to reinvent the wheel with another installation format? Do you really
you can create a universal format including DEB and RPM? Then you need
produce more work than the creators of these formats. This is such a
difficult project...
