Chapter 2. Working with Applications > Install an Application from Disc or Down...

1. Install an Application from Disc or Download


Installing an application under Mac OS X is considerably different from the way it's traditionally done under Windows. Because Mac OS X has no central Registry for storing application data (as Windows does), and because Mac OS X applications are single monolithic “bundles”—which can be moved around from place to place or from disk to disk as though each application is a single file (rather than being folders full of DLLs and config files, as it's traditionally done in Windows)—oftentimes installing an application involves nothing more complicated than dragging an icon from one disk window to another.
