Would it not be like any other interface element, customized for the 
audience it is intended for?

If you are installing drivers or libraries for a technical crowd, I 
would think it should be as non-intrusive as possible.

On the other hand, if the product is being delivered to my sister, 
she might feel more comfortable by an all-enveloping process which 
eases her anxiety with anything technical. And, there might be 
something useful that I can impart which will help her, lesson 
support on my end, and yes, perhaps even market my wares.

Just a perspective :)
