When considering software installation methods, what are the comparative advantages and disadvantages of using MSI (Microsoft Installer) versus EXE (Executable) installers in terms of ease of deployment, reliability, customization options, compatibility across different operating systems, and overall user experience, and how do these factors influence the choice between the two installation formats for different software deployment scenarios?

Idk, whichever one makes better toast. Sometimes you just crave some toast to go with your spam.

While Spam is still popular in Hawaii, I believe it has been outlawed in Toledo.

If It weren't a bot prepping to spam us, I would say MSI because it works with Group Policy Objects and is easier to deploy unattended.

MSI the company that knowingly it shipped bad PSUs to customers in 2022. Definitely the right choice.
