As usual; Let us know what you feel / think / break. Can't make any promises that we will fix it, but we will take them into consideration!

Hmmm... download took forever as it calceled it every few seconds, but maybe an error in my network.
First start, it crashed when selecting a printer. After a few times, it worked...

Next, when copying my own printer dual UMO profile in and selecting it, it crashes again. I created a new issue incl. the crash report at github... :-)

I downloaded it but Windows 10 really, really didn't want to run it

At least I got an option to Run Anyway by clicking on Details

There is nothing to worry about. We've managed to get Cura whitelisted for a number of virus scanners.

Time for my shameless plug for ditching WIndows and moving to Linux? I dropped Windows back in 1999, and only use it for tax software now (well, and my work computer that I am forced to use).

Linux will probably work better as we have a lot more developers working on Linux ;)

But then the topic become...which flavor of Linux?

I've used Peppermint and could never get Cura to work on it.

We can all curse Windows but there's a lot of Linux builds out there. Which one do people prefer for general purpose computing?
