By not making a PowerPC based version available for those of us who
use Linux on a PowerMac or BeOS on a genuine BeBox or a PowerMac.
I don't even mention Mac OS nor Amiga OS.
I've been cracking keys for D.net since the 23rd of december 1997 and
a personnal proxy was in the works since january 1998!
A lot of people in my team have stopped their client because of this,
tired of waiting. Some of them have switched to SETI, some of them
just stopped distributed computing. Last year our team was ranked
212. It was ranked 30 this spring (as it was for nearly six months),
and now it is ranked 52 and still goin' down, due to lack of interest.
Ah by the way the team is fr.comp.sys.mac, team #1416, should I say
we mostly use Macs?
