Hi Filip,
my application has just a requirement: Mono installed. I think that if a user
can download a global installer that perform all the tasks needed to use my
application (create directory tree, copy files and related resource, create
shortcut in menu/desktop, create uninstaller,and so on), the user will love me
(if the application does not crash !!! :)).
IMHO this is fantastic for the "final" user. The "advanced" user can easily
download the source code and compile it.
