    Installer is crashing quite often. There is some potential in development, but stability of like pre-alpha product.

    The MinGW project doesn't seem to be well maintained. At the time of writing (2015), the package manager only seems to only have about 6 packages and all of them are from 2013. At this point in time, it is generally better to use MSYS2. Also, I agree that the installer is bad. The UI for the installer is trying to incorporate checkboxes and radio buttons into some big sentence/paragraph, which is weird. A good UI should try as much as possible to stick to elements that people are familiar with and understand. (If you are MinGW developer, this is not intended as a personal jab at you. You have no obligation to maintain this project and you don't owe the community anything. The work you did on this project was useful.)
