Seen on a web site distributing a RTSP implementation in source code form:

How to configure and build the code on Windows

To configure the code for Windows, first unpack it on a Unix machine

The justification for this is, apparently, "it's rather hard to imagine anyone doing serious development of networking software without having any access to a Unix machine". I do have access to a unix machine, however that machine happens to be at the university, which is not where I am.

Come on, you unix fanboys need to learn that not everyone uses unix or unix-variants. Would you be happy if I distributed code that compiled on linux, but only if you first unpacked it on a windows box?
