    Pretty ridiculous to give such tiny reviews that actually include installation instructions. Really? Twice as much space dedicated to Pycharm installation instructions than are dedicated to reviewing Pycharm? That’s ridiculous. What kind of idiots do you think people are that they can’t figure out how to install the products?
