Whilst, when I was a VMS user, I would regard compiling a program from source as the most natural way to do things, with MS Windows I expect pre-compiled binaries and would have no wish whatsoever to compile someone else's program[s], tho' I might very occasionally want to compile my own.
The problem in TeX Live is that the programs are not written just in
one programming language. I do not mind compiling someone else's
programs but I do not have all tools installed so that I am not able
to compile the whole TeX Live. I do not like to install tools just for
TeX Live compilation if I do not use them for my work, thus I am happy
that I can install precompiled binaries even in Linux.
