100% correct on both counts!

Windows and Mac has it easy, because there is one governing body and a lot
more standardized. Everybody keeps going on about how easy it is to install
software on Windows or Mac. So yes, my idea of a new software installer
might be more focused at Linux issue at this point in time, because that is
where the most problems lie. The average Joe simply doesn't know how to
install software on Linux and they hate the command prompt.
