After having spent most of yesterday and today installing Visual Studio 2012, updates for it, Azure Tools for 2012, and Azure Tools for 2010, I was just thinking it would be nice if installers that say "this could take a few minutes" instead presented a normal distribution of how long it takes for actual users. For example:
This install typically takes:
-Under 1 minute for the fastest 5% of installs.
-Around 5 minutes for typical installs.
-Over 20 minutes for the slowest 5% of installs.
I doubt very many installers will actually take the time to gather and present statistics like this, but it'd be nice.
