I agree - Klik is more like a Mac installation

They are all together in one repository. It is open source and designed 
for Linux.

It is just one click total for the install.

Everything needed for the application that is not included in the 
distribution is put in a single compressed file, so it doesn't touch 
your system or upgrade or interfere with any other software on your machine

Klik is already installed on a number of distributions

To uninstall a klik application, you just put the file in the trash and 
empty it

Again the install with Klik will not mess with any other software on 
your machine - it is all in one file on your desktop.
