I have had to explain, a large number of times, to each person I gave an
Ubuntu disc to, who previously used Windows, that: "You don't download
and install, you use Synaptic!"... "syn-what?"
A perfect solution for this class of users would be a nice little nag
screen that is activated when you doubble click a .deb .rpm or .tar.gz.
Something along these lines:
"Little HOWTO explaining the correct way to install stuff."
[I know this, just unpack the damn file and never till me this again!]
