digitalmars.D - A quick question for Walter and Andrei - LDC

Is there a particular reason why don't you, heavyweights, concentrate your 
efforts on LDC instead of Walters DMD? IMO - LDC should benefit from your 
expertise a whole lot and it would unify a community effort to bring D to 
the spotlight it needs.

That is all.

PS
For LDC guys - one striking/usability point I've got as an input from other 
people when I've tried to direct them to try out D: Where are precompiled 
installation packages for Windows/OSX? You know people are downright lazy, 
you should account for that.

LDC doesn't work on Windows yet. I think that answers both your questions. <g>

If I'm reading the question right: for various legal reasons Walter can't/won't work on compiles He doesn't own.
