Mac OS X There are several things which take quite some getting used to when switching from any platform to the Mac. There are things like the universal menubar, the dock, Expose, and many more. One of the things that often leads to confusion for new users is the installation process for applications. Mozilla developer Alexander Limi talks about the problems Mozilla runs into when it comes to Firefox' installation process on the Mac, and a possible solution. Update: A possible solution?

I never cared for that method. Of Clicking the check box. Because if your app isn't on the list then it is a pain to install it. Apple solutions is a simple and elegant solution. And technically easy. You have a directory containing everything you need to run you copy that directory in an other directory.

The Linux library mean you can only used that distributions "PURE" software. Which means installed closed source application is a No-No or just open source apps that are not really popular that solves that once scratch you need to fix.

The Mac OS allows you really install any app from anywhere.
