Maybe you should write a book, Gerben, and make millions :) I don't know 
what you'd fill the other 998 pages with...

Thomas's response echoes everything I think about i-Installer, but much 
more coherently and comprehensively. I definitely missed out a few 
things in my comments to you.

I'll add that once installing, which can take a while, i-Installer is 
happy to sit in the background and not bother the rest of the system at 
all---there is no perceived notion of a giant software distribution 
spiderwebbing its way invisibly all over your computer.

But I reiterate that I prefer it without metal ;)

Thanks again,
