If GitHub is not a place of political activism, then explain all the Ruby projects hosted on GitHub.
Except maybe for Links/Lynx, what browser uses that little amount of memory. Firefox has been doing quite well in the more recent versions, it uses less memory than MSIE and Chrome. (No idea about the others).

sf.net was the only project host which still offered release downloads. Not every project can afford a deviated download solutions for all their releases.

Linux beats Windows.
Order of easiest OS installs I did the last 2 years:
- Debian (about 6 times pressing [enter], and once a down button or something, takes about 20 minutes between second to last [enter] and the [enter] to reboot)
- Ubuntu (needed a few more down buttons and [enter], so, a couple of more minutes before the download+install happens)
- Windows pre-install on a Dell system (takes about 10 minutes, reboot, 15 more minutes, reboot, 10 more minutes, reboot, 20 more minutes, etc.)
- MS-DOS 4 on a modern PC using magnets
- Windows pre-install on a HP business system

That device is called a "gamepad" and has existed on the PC for years.
Solving problems is like marinating meat. It takes time. If you rush it, you get a quick solution, but not the best. A quick solution might be acceptable for one meal, but not for future meals.
The "Eureka effect" isn't something new.
1) "cloud", it's usually nothing but a vendor lock in
2) executed by companies with no interested in empowering the community
The people will not get better by these projects. Remember: the government is there to serve the people.
