    The premise is wrong so it's impossible to discuss.

    Unironically how the frick does MacOS do the drag and drop method for installation?
    >mount .dmg as a drive
    >drag app icon into Applications folder

      1. closed ecosystem
      thats a part of libraries that can be linked on runtime
      2. encapsulation
      what needs to be installed comes with the package

      appimages work like that on loonix
      snaps work like that if im not mistaken
      and appimages are also supported on mac, so im not sure who created the format

        Only snaps take like give seconds to start a calculator app and consumes half a GiB of ram. I miss the times devs had some sense of decency

      Sounds like you figured it out. It's extracting a packaged file into a directory

      .app is a directory with files in it that constitute a complete, working application

      Mac bundles are the OG flatpak/appimage minus the 2 GB for 2 MB app side effect because OSX isn't a fragmented ecosystem where you need to include core system libraries in the package.

      Seriously though, why do you need to do the drag and drop thing with the mount drive thingy on macOS when it's just a simple .exe installation on windows? Can any savvy linux/GNU people explain to me I'm tech illiterate

        how would i, a linux/gnu person know why macos does something?

        I'm not a gnu/linux person and I don't know much about the system, but I suppose the drive image is a standard way of packaging programs for it for distribution, and the drag and drop thing both calls the OS routing for "installing" the program and teaches the normie that they were the ones who put the program in the Apps folder, so that's where they should be looking for it.
        There are programs that have Windows-like installer wizards on OS X too.

        i can only explain the technical reason why app bundles are shipped in a disc image, that is that app bundles, despite looking like a file, are actually a folder with many files in them, and since you can't really download a folder, you have to combine them into a single file in some way, a disc image is just what they went with, perhaps because it enables access without needing to extract the contents as it is mountable
        technically speaking it's not much different to installers on windows, which are also just a way to combine the many files of a program into one easily-distributable file

      in my experience, experienced linux users tend to be more experienced with windows than windows users

      I literally never used any of those. It looks like they are used for pozzed pseudo-linux package manager bullshit with nu-windows apps. Every Windows program worthy of mentioning uses exe or msi.

    Maybe you're too young to remember but Windows used to also have .com executables.

    a script that will autobuild an archive file and install it as a package.

    The only format on linux is an ELF file.
