To be equally blunt: I see users who use HP for Mac and Windows get up and
running easily. I see users that don't have "poor package managers" (read
Linux distros) struggle constantly in #haskell, even with HP. As a separate
thread, we should think about how to improve the situation for those with
good package managers!
