Hi Flavio, revisit old threads without converting them on a flamewar is
always a good thing if there is interest on the topic.

Having only a "portable" version or release a software only on that way
seems quite "amateur" to me. Professional software needs installers if
we want to reach general public. On a corporate environment sometimes
requirements are even harder and not only an installer but a remote or
unattended installer is needed.

So, having a portable version of gvSIG or any other FOSS4G software is
always great, so you can go anywhere with a USB drive with your tools
and be ready to work, but we need to provide the general users an
installer (and an add-on tool as an asset) to let them install the
software as they are used to.

In my own case, I always install gvSIG using the installer, in fact I
have this layout:

jsanz at mylaptop:~/bin/gvsig$ tree gvSIG* -d -L 1
??? gvSIG111_1305
??? gvSIG112_1411
??? gvSIG2.0.0_2047
??? gvSIGMobileXP

When I install gvSIG I point to a 1.6 JRE that I know works well (I
can't point to a system JRE as I'm on a 64bits). So I have a folder for
all gvSIG installations with different folders by major versions and an
specifc folder for every build. Last week I cleaned 10 or 14 old
installations :-)
