Create an application folder and install apps dragging their icon into that application folder. It's easier than package installing and more intuitive for new users. Also resolve dependencies in background.
I remember looking at OS X asking me to do this when I installed some software for the first time. I thought it was a completely unnecessary step, it was confusing to anyone used to installers, then I had to go find the dang folder to run the program. Yeah, I admit it. I don't know how to use OS X. But then neither do the majority of PC users. I think Ubuntu's package management is a much easier transition for any PC user.

Quite a few changes to package management have come and gone in three years, and there is still little interest in this idea. So I'm closing it.
