Linux "Klik is unique among software installation systems for Linux, in that each package installed through klik is self-contained, isolated from the rest of the operating system. Klik isn't a package management system; rather it's an application that lets you download and run software without installing it."

Windows?

I know next to nothing about klik, but from what I understand KDE and QT and whatnot are being ported to Windows. Anyone know how that effects klik? Drag and drop apps on Windows would rock.

emmmmm, it "might" work, but then, the apps would not.
the apps would have to be ported as well as klik itself.

That's a very interesting question. Right now the Wiki state they are completely incompatible with Windows, but once the KDE and QT libs are ported...who knows!

Edit: Hmm, raver31 pretty much answered the question. :-)

You would need cramfs support in Windows first.
