I noticed this when I tried the first ARES beta back in March. Took a boatload of screen captures while installing, planning to post them on my blog, then read the EULA. Bummer.

Graebert has taken the "Windows installer" route, I guess so people coming from the Windows world would feel at home. (having install instructions identical between platforms makes sense too I guess)

Bricsys chose the Linux way. They offer .deb packages for Debian/Ubuntu, and .rpm packages for Fedora/openSUSE. I don't know about .rpm, but .deb packages are as easy (if not easier) to install as Windows installers. After you launch the package by double-clicking it, it requires your password, then no more is needed, no sequence of dialog boxes you have to go through, it simply installs.
