Nonfree program in windows client installer
There is an installer of nonfree program (Visual C++ Redistributable). What is it used for? Is it a hard dependency of windows client? (Yes I know that there is an exception in GPL for that) Could it be replaced with Mingw, or is client using Visual C++ specific libraries or features? I know that a common Windows user don't care about what software they run, but I think, installer should at least notify about nonfree dependency being installed. Please consider avoiding using this software if it is possible.
