Excerpts from Adam's message of 2015-10-26 01:23:09 +0100:

thanks for clarifying that. now i understand the difference. of course they are
related, but one is used by people who want to install software, while the
other is used by developers managing their cod

i wonder if "development" could have a better name, like "tools" or "development tools"

and if most things are about development, then "web development" might be "web
frameworks" or just "web" because otherwise it gives the impression that other
things would not be about development.


one more thing, i find the grey-on-white small text hard to read. i have to
zoom in a lot to make it out. small text like that would be better with higher contrast.

svg apparently supports tooltips:

maybe that can be used here.

greetings, martin.
