Why not actually say why icon isn't green?

The number one problem users seem to complain about with wamp is they don't know why the icon is orange or red, because wamp just doesn't directly say why.

Wouldn't the obvious answer be to just indicate the reason? Clearly Wamp is able to know that something is wrong, why not just indicate the reason in the wamp menu instead of forcing users to try and figure out which aspect is broken.

At the very LEAST indicate it's apache, it's mysql, it's php.

Each system is different, using different applications, have different configurations.
The reasons why That a Service (Apache or MySQL) does not start are multiple and can be dozens and dozens of different causes.
If you're so smart, write yourself a program that gives the causes of the malfunction.
There's has, we have to!
