This is for a regular, source tarball installation. I'm not thinking
about package managers and such.

Getting bazaar

1. Go to
2. Click "Get"
3. Click "Installing from source tarballs ..."
4. Click on the link to the tarball

Total 4 clicks. 5 if you chose "Installing on Linux and Unix" in step
3. BTW, I think making this distinction between installing on linux
and installing from a source tarball is just plain confusing. It
should instead be something like "Managed installation -- installers
for windows and packages for Linux" and "Source installations"

Getting Mercurial
1. Go to
2. Click on the source tarball

Total clicks: 2

Infact when I head to the Mercurial page, the link for the tarball is
ALWAYS one of the first things that catches my eye. I think thats
great and would love the Bazaar website to do something similar.

Just my 2c,
