Re: Zero Install

Posted by: Fletch on December 23, 2008 11:09 AM
Hmm, that may not be a bad idea. However, for a system engineer supporting the host, it would mean that he or she would have to dig through user directories to understand why apps are installed and where problems occur. But then, I don't know where it allows end users to install applications. This really is interesting, but if we are talking about installing services (web servers, application stacks), I don't think that would be a good fit in an enterprise role. This too is worth checking out.
