Response to: I hate installers

installers are a nuisance. Programs should just be directly executable, full stop. Worst of all are those on windows that don`t ask you where you want to install a program, but just put it in a default location, which I don`t wish to use, and then refuse to work when you move them because of the equally stupid registry (give me the os/2 config.sys any day). The people who write such crap must be idiots, and overall I can`t stand the way that windoze assumes it knows best what you want.
