Then WTF are they doing on GitHub ?

We are talking a ****ing WINDOWS EXECUTABLE FGS !!!!!! The worst kind.

Penguinaistas are probably more comfortable with MD5 checking - and more likely to do it.

But your average Windows user really will just click and run.

Bluntly, I'm not impressed that Microsoft - of all companies - has created a situation where people think it's OK to just run any old .EXE file they found on GitHub. Because that's what it is. No one can be trusted on the internet. Microsoft doubly so.
