There are users that I've tried to install KDE SC for w$ that do not want to
install it because the installer downloads a lot of files (to a folder
only), and installs a lot of files (to another folder only).
Those are the same users that install Games that copies 1 Gib to their hard
Those are the same users that install a mail client that uses 400 Mib of
their hard disk, and installs a lot of "strange" dependencies, like an
Instant Message client.

They are so used to the InstallShield installers, with only one .exe file
with everything inside, where you do not see what/how many files are being
copied (where?), that anything different makes them scare.
