This page seems mostly useless.
what about doom for windows7?
== This page seems mostly uselesswas written by a nerd. == Okay. Presumably, this page would be for clueless newbies; who are typically the kind of people with the attention span of a goldfish and a tendency to panic when a text to read is more than two-paragraph long. This article would need to be considerably simplified.
Basically, what needs to be said is nothing more than this:
::* A normal-looking Win32 installation routine, with a point-and-click interface, which automatically adds shortcuts to the desktop and Start menu.  The user should not have to decompress files manually, let alone use a command line.
::* An integrated GUI launcher.  (Yes, this excludes most ZDoom distributions.)
::* The ability to use IWADs/PWADs that aren't in the port's folder. Ideally, the launcher remembers their locations between sessions; the user should never have to know where config files are located.
::* Default graphics/sound setups with broad compatibility.  Installing multiple SDL components just to get the app running is insane.
:: Also, [ that list] looks like tl;dr to me.  It would be better to have a simple table for each OS (game title vs shareware/full, or something).    [[User:Ryan W|Ryan W]] 21:34, May 23, 2010 (UTC)
