Why use a Makefile for running a node.js?

I’m on windows, and I don’t have Make installed. The guide says you need Go and Node.js to get started, so we can safely assume developers can run LESS via a Node.js script. Using Make just adds one more requirement for prospective contributors. Is it really worth it?

Make definitely helps reduce the number of commands you manually need to run. But I’m definitely open to any other setup you think could streamline this, especially for Windows users!
