Actually, I have the Mac/OS X attitude about software even for Windows 
and Linux nowadays.

If you ask for my root/administrator password, I dump your software.  I 
expect to unpack/mount an archive and run.

A package must run in user space to allow me to check it out, if it does 
not, I do not install it.

Obviously, there are exceptions (insert rant about Apple packaging their 
own software, grrrr ....), but I am making fewer and fewer of them.
