Susanne, choose your words more carefully, and take a breath before
sending email.

Nope. It is not culture, etc. I still am not sure that you are really
looking at the page. Download starts in 5 seconds automatically. What
else are you expecting?

Talk is cheap. Please show us the *Community* PostgreSQL Installer which
has at least the current quality *and* which works on various platforms
*and* which go under a heavy QA process *and* which is free. 

If you do this, I'll be more than happy to remove EDB link from our
website as a website committer, and give the link to the new installer
-- assuming that they will be distributed from postgresql.org, nowhere
else.

I'm a packager, and I really dislike the attitude towards
people/companies who are spending too much time (more than you can think
of) on binary packages.
