Best way to release a closed-source app.
(intro: no flame intended)
I've got a little developer question. As a private company developing closed-source soft, and planning to support linux as well as win and macos, what king of release system would you use for your customers to download/install the application?
Let me explain: if BigCorp, inc (or SmallCorp) is releasing Photoshop/Office/whatever on linux tomorrow, what kind of package would be the best?
- a tarball + shellscript installer?
- an rpm/any distro specific package?
- just a big zip with the binaries (x86+ppc, of course) and the resource files in a custom folder architecture, and a readme stating "do what you want to create shortcuts/lanuchers on your desktop env"?
Thanks for your ideas...
