With Python 2.5 out, probably need to build a binary of PyOpenGL-SWIG. That requires re-installing Windows (both machines are corrupt), then getting the whole MS-Toolkit compiler-chain re-built (double blech). Windows is a serious PITA.
The worst part is that I'm actually contributing to the monopoly-value of Windows (network effects) when I support libraries on it, which is annoying given that I would rather spend my energy supporting projects working for the public good. Sure, there's the "cross-platform code lets people migrate off the platform more easily" argument, but it still feels wrong to be installing it when I could be working on more universally beneficial things.
