I was perfectly happy to never see install shield when I switched 100% all those years ago. Please please don't come near my Linux boxen. They are wonderfully happy and stable. I love the way apt-get deals with my software installation needs.

I understand your reluctance to have a Installshield on a linux box but does it have to replace anything? Couldn't it just be another option for the people coming from the Windows camp. Anything to make the switch less cumbersome I would think would be a good thing.
