Convenience, to me, is one-click downloading from the home

remotely compete with these languages in terms of convenience.
It needs a new slogan, and it can't get one until it knows what
it is. Here's a suggestion: "A Language for Programmers". It
would obviously need to be vetted by the big wigs, but from my
perspective, it's already a real brand without any extra work.
I wonder if they'll agree with me?
pgModeler (for postgres) sells the binaries for a small price.
The source code is GPL so it is available in linux distributions.
Text from their website:
"pgModeler is an open source software and you can get its source
code anytime if you want to compile it for yourself. As a
facility, we provide compiled binary packages at a really small
price. Also, if you're interested in evaluate a binary package,
you can get a demo copy before proceed with the purchase. Since
this is an independent project by purchasing any binary package
you'll help to keep its development alive and at full speed! "
There you go, full speed.
