Well, that's up to you. However I think Atari users will have to live with
the fact that special drivers might not be free or bundled with something
else. So if they want to keep the developers happy and active, they will
need to invest something.

GEM based installation is currently not at the top of the list. The problem
is that it's more then copying some files into the right directory, and
coming up with a nice installer is not that easy...
