This could allow more people to work on this even if their computers aren't supported because they could make it themselves.

I see that you started folding ONE HOUR AGO. Why dont you first show that you can make use of all the incredible effort that went into building this current version before making demands on what the project team should do with their hard earned source code ?

That's rather hard if it doesn't support your OS.
