Hi Erich,

I don't know which operating system you are using, but I am sure you
are used to a command-line based one. Thus, you must be a power user.
However, the average Enigma player is not a power user, which means
they don't have enough knowledge on, let's say, where the 'Auto
folder' is located. Thus, using an add-ons manager should make their
life easier.



P.S: Could you please explain more precisely how your kiosk mode would work?
