Re: Do libraries I use need to be installed on every computer?
Personally, I'd just as soon you statically link everywhere. Dynamic linking is a plague.
EDIT: I should probably mention I meant plague in a very metaphorical sense. Using dynamic linking encourages other people to do so (and to create dlls which in turn makes dynamic linking more attractive.) However, dynamic linking does have actual harmful effects. Most of them are negligible and/or solved by some system we currently have. I'd just as soon people use static linking because the world would be simpler for it... but it's not really necessary that it happen.
