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.
