I'd like to give this a try for I find it interesting, as I'm missing RAM disks on OSX, but I'd be happier if it wasn't a package. Perhaps it needs to, but I'm passing on this due to it, as uninstalling packages can be a pain in the ass.

Anything that has to install drivers is going to either be a package or is going to do the same thing as a package the first time you run it: install the startup code, the driver, any frameworks, etc...

There's no way around it for any application like this. Even if it was a manual install you'd end up having to do a lot of work to pull it out again.

Uninstalling packages can be done easily.

If you hadn't been so short sighted, you would of downloaded the package, opened it and seen RIGHT THERE in the installer that it tells you the TWO files it installs.

If you can't be bothered to possibly move two files, then maybe the world is just too hard a place for you to handle.

Use Pacifist to look into a package and see where it is putting things if that is your (rightful) concern.

" If you hadn't been so short sighted, you would of downloaded the package, opened it and seen RIGHT THERE in the installer that it tells you the TWO files it installs."

Well, if you weren't SO short-sighted you could possibly understand not every average user knows so much as to handle packages and their contents confidently.

Although I've no trouble with them, I can perfectly understand the first poster's point of view, and I truly think it would certainly be better for the average user (and anyone in the end) if Apple didn't mind providing an uninstaller, though.

Take a look at the suggestions by the other posters: they suggest/offer help instead of insulting. See the difference? I bet you don't!
Anyway, I bet, too, you're afraid of the Terminal and that you've serious trouble socializing, so...

--------------

That aside, this little app. is GOOD and FREE (and it doesn't seem to require the installer now, which I think is good after all).
If the developer feels like giving it the "final touch", so that the Terminal doesn't show up and one hasn't got to type "exit" on it and then quit it, it will be even more rounded that it is now - and it is well-rounded now as far as I'm concerned.
But even if he leaves it the way it is, I think it deserves five starts and a thank-you.
