Michael,

When you're buying Snort in the form of Sourcefire's appliance or
support, you can make demands of them.

When you're downloading code from an open source project, you are in
no position to judge Sourcefire's "priorities" or label their actions
"wrong."

If Snort on Windows is so important to you, step up to the plate and
figure out how to make their source code work on your platform of
choice.

Otherwise just be thankful a commercial company is devoting resources
and payroll to releasing their code as open source.  Without that,
you'd have nothing to complain about.

Sincerely,

Richard
