I vote for .dmg for the OSX version. See Firefox for how easy installation can
Different topic - would love to see Blender package its libraries on Linux the
way it does for OSX. Would make life easier for shared cluster use where
installing libraries could break other researcher's apps.

'If you are a real mac user, you use .dmg images very often,
since it's the way most apps do it, so why should this be confusing?'
If your ANY kind of real computer user, you've probably decompressed a .zip
On another note, PackageMaker.app *may* provide an easier installation, as
it chooses the directory for the user,
and it might be possible for it to check the environment, ie what version of
python, for the user. However, its an extra step for builders, and takes
quite a while to package blender on my machine.
