To the extent that this guy provide something for free then his take
or leave it attitude is fair enough. But what a piece of work.

The criticisms -- almost entirely centered on how you actually install
this beast -- seem totally valid. The end result may be good -- the
installation didn't work for me so I don't know -- but it is a dog if
it is not possible to install the thing. I'd like some explanation as
to why he would design something this way but he seems almost
contemptuous in this posting.
