Q-Prot: New label free quan software
I can't tell you much about this one, other than you can download it on Sourceforge and that it relies on you having a C compiler and the GNU C proteomics toolkit. So, yes, it does fall into the category of software that is a pain in the neck to install. On the up-side, there is a paper currently in review on it and the instructions are already available in the install package here. It also does label free quan by spectral counting and intensity while trying to perform FDR on the quan values it receives.
I know I'm supposed to be boycotting software that is hard to install, but I've been a big fan of the other (also difficult to install....) software from the Nesvizhskii lab.
