I hate statements like that... What about the fact that one of the first 
options within just about any Windows based installset is to select the 
location you wish to install to? I've seen C:\Program Files\, D:\Program 
Files and even on E:... 

So it's a quirk of human nature not of any O/S related problem, different 
people like different things so they do things differently. :)

At least on Linux normal users are restricted to their Home directory so they 
can't muck up the actual filesystem without knowing at least a little about 
what they are doing...
