I think the comparison isn't fair at all. As I said on November 26 to  
Gerben Wierda,

And that's what I think ---Claus Gerhardt has been very helpful to  
this list, though I really didn't understand many of his recent  
remarks, like ``In my opinion Gerben's i-Installer shouldn't be used  
any more for installing TeX''.

I'll always be grateful to Gerben Wierda, thanks to whom I'm using  
LaTeX now. And I hope Claus Gerhardt returns after a while to help us  
with his scripts ---every time I pull TeXShop's Macros menu I'll see  
his contributions.
