I'm an advocate of DragInstall for Macintosh.
Once you start down the slippery slope to a code-driven installer, there's no turning back.
Today I installed an art program
for the Mac, and the installer requested administrator access. Hmmm, am I missing something here? Since when does an art program need to run as root?
This continuous prompting for Administrator access significantly weakens security, paving the way for malware and viruses. When the issuing of security priviledges happens on such a frequent basis, it loses all meaning, becoming nothing more than an annoyance for users.
Drag Install. If OfficeX 2002 can do drag install, you too can do drag install.
