“Installing from the source code is a great solution for when you are
comfortable enough with your platform and perhaps need specific
settings for your environment. Its also a good solution in the event
that there are no other premade packages for your platform.”

Though the folk I have met,
(Ah, how soon!) they forget
When I’ve moved on to some other place,
There may be one or two,
When I’ve played and passed through,
Who’ll remember my song or my face.
