1-Click installers

So here I am sat in the hotel room with nothing to do, the net access is not fast enough to stream TV I am waiting for the iplayer to download something good.  My mind turns to works past and present, being bored I found my self comparing hosting packages fro various different hosting companies in the UK.  It is interesting to see how such a simple idea has been implemented in in such different and diverse ways, the first time I remember seeing application installers for many different open source applications was in cPanel, clunky old version of the applications but I think they were the first.  Since then we have seen the hosting industry embrace this concept to a greater or lesser extent.

If we look at just the main UK hosting companies that offer real 1-click installers you get quite a small list of the companies I know best
