1) Since TeX is big, you can install only what you want by selecting the packages you wish to.
2) Have the option of installing the packages again and *also* re-configuring them. That in my opinion is a big plus. This helps when you have two packages dependent on each other. No need for any command line stuff.

Target users - Mainly people in the academics and few in the industry. Students, faculty, staff - a wide age group.

Havent used any counterpart on OS X. So cant say for sure. However, it *is* the most popular TeX installation on OS X. Most TeX related websites guide you to i-Installer for installing TeX on Mac OS X.

On Windows I use MiKTeX. i-Installer is comparable in terms of features and ease of use to MiKTeX.
