Every developer needs to know MSI/ORCA, and WIX

Recently, I need to pick up more msi/orca/wix.

Then, I realize that every developer needs to know WIX and ORCA.

1. WIX makes it so easy to treat installation as part of the development. Just as every developer should understand nant/MSbuild, every one should know wix.

2. Further -- Everyone will install something in development -- my goodness, what are in those msi’s!!! I am always scared. This is the core reason that I say, every developer should know msi/orca – of course, for this purpose, wix is optional.

Also, it is easy, even it looks very difficult.
