This is opposed to the "Windows model" of a one-click installer for a
monolithic application. Many Windows users get extremely frustrated
when they have to use more than one tool.

There is also a deep anxiety of using the keyboard. This means that
command line tools are out of the question (everything needs a GUI).

In the Windows world, even programming should be drag-and-drop with
the mouse. Windows programmers will go to extreme measures to avoid
typing code on their own, as tke keyboard is so scary. The most
extreme case is not Visual Basic but LabView, where even business
logic is drag-and-drop.

A side-effect is that many Windows developers are too dumb to write
code on their own, and rely on pre-coded "components" that can be
dropped on a "form". A common fail-case is multiuser applications,
where the developers do not understand anything about what is going
on, and scalability is non-existent.
