Oh boy, another Linux fanboy...
Shared libraries on Linux/Unix are basically the same as dlls on
Windows. But on Linux/Unix, there aren't custom installers that
overwrite existing libraries since the distro maintainers take care of
that. On Windows, any developer can write an installer, and a lot of
them don't care and just overwrite any dll that's there.

If MS would control all installers like on Linux/Unix the distro
maintainers do, there would be no dll hell.

And yes, you do contradict yourself. That's not an insult, that's a
simple fact and a statement from me. I'm not drawing lines in the sand,
I just told you what you don't want to hear and accept.

And btw: take your own advice "You should read what you write and
consider how it will be received on the other end" - read your first
post again and then ask yourself that very same question.
