Subject Re: [VOTE] Release InstallApacheFlex 1.0 - RC8
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2012 06:34:38 GMT
Ah, a Windows thing ;-) I really didn't see the point, but had no
objection... but I'm on a Mac. On Windows, yes, I totally agree that
it should be in a general directory 'Apache Flex', but maybe not in
it's own subdirectory, but in a directory 'utilities'? And are we (or
the Installer installer) creating shortcuts in the Start menu (while
it lasts...) and on the Desktop? If so, what are their names?

All this ties very strongly with the "first impressions" thing, which
I feel very strong about.
