It’s cross-platform. Trust me, we want Mac and Windows users:
It’s fantastic. But enough with the praise…
(1) Why was I not aware that this was already available for Windows
with a three-click installer…?? You’ve got some marketing to

(2) Where is avogadro-discuss, the users’ mailing list?
(3) To me, it should be middle-mouse button to translate, right-button
to zoom. Check out GaussView, Mercury and other programs.
(4) When I started the program it was not on rotate mode. It should
be. I spent a few minutes adding random carbon atoms to a protein.
(Remember, no-one reads the manual, and everyone expects to be able to
rotate the molecule)
(5) I went to File, Open, looking for an example file but found none.
Throw in a couple of diverse molecules, a protein and so on.
(6) The big bubble on zoom is not useful. Why not add a scale along
the side of the window
with some measurements in Angstrom or something?
(7) I closed the document and discarded changes. Clicking on "Close"
