You are correct of course.  I don't tell people what to do.  I suggest
as in the suggested donations to AMSAT support.
Excuse me, I have to go outside and breathe now..Good Luck and I am on
your side as well.  Everyone has an opinion, and if we choose not to
listen, we will not learn from mistakes.
Since I am a local coordinator for AMSAT, I am the guy that meets the
masses at Hamfests and listens... Believe me, they have unloaded on me
since I am standing in front of them at that moment.  Since I am
retired, I have time now to assist with things I have left to others.
Be good and again, enjoy the sats.  This is the end of the hobby I
have a passion for.   Life is too short as you said.
Dee, NB2F

And that may be the reason some people simply choose not to use
Windows but other 
platforms instead which you just ignored.

Seriously? Maybe you should go outside, breathe in the fresh air and
enjoy life. You're 
getting way too riled up about something that's in the larger scheme
of things not worth it. 
What is your problem? Why do you feel you need to tell people what to
do? And even more
why do you believe that just because they don't agree with your choice
of a certain tool they
don't support the efforts of AMSAT? Do you track the donations by name
and have a list?

Relax, life's too short.
