Well, I think the important part here is the need for a newbie package, or
actually two packages, one for Linux and one for Win32.

A Lua distribution !! A bit like the Linux scene (and lets all just for a
moment pretend that the Linux scene works - this is not a invitation to a
flamewar :-)

I know that several different packages has been made, but maybe it time to
consider the need for these packages to become more visual on

I will suggest that the Lua authors either make a newbie package or find one
of the existing and link actively to that from Ofcause with all the
usually warnings etc. but still in a way so people would trust it.
