Graphics, User Interfaces Federkiel writes: "People working with Apple computers are used to a very consistent user experience. For a large part this stems from the fact that the Lisa type of GUI does not have the fight between MDI and SDI. The question simply never arises, because the Lisa type of GUI does not offer the choice to create either of both; it's something different all along. I usually think of it as 'MDI on steroids unified with a window manager'. It virtually includes all benefits of a SDI and and the benefits of an MDI."

Well when you install something, you drag it from one place to another, why is that so unnatural on a computer?

It didn't say it was unnatural.
I said it was more complicated, as in more steps are used to accomplish installing an application.

I like the entire package design as it is more sreamlined, and it makes backing up my Mac easy. What I don't like is the extras steps needed to get something installed. I'd rather be able to right click on a dmg and select an install option.

I guess I could write a script to do that, but I haven't looked into it.
