One Click Installer

Hi all,
      A user perspective. Somebody had theorized about having a
better packaging method which would make users install more software.
I disagree with that. Users install stuff when they come to know about
them, for e.g. I use as well as to know about what new  packages are there & what
different functionalities it provides. Most users looks always for
some short blurb about some product/project & some screenshots if
possible & then make it a point to see from how/where to source it and
do the needful.
 There was a rumor about Linspire's  now GPL'ed (CNR) service being
available on Ubuntu by Q4 2k7 but nothing after that. Can somebody
shed a light if something is happening on that front?

Looking forward to comments, additions, flames on the above.
