Microsoft software takes forever to install…

So I am playing with a test environment of Windows 2008 Server / Exchange / Sharepoint.  After obtaining all the media, I find that there are a million dependencies.  The time it takes to install a functional system, meeting all necessary requirements, is insane.  Why can’t we have Microsoft provide a package manager similar to YUM or APT that could just get things done?

    I think that by saying “Microsoft” and “just get things done” in one sentence yer’ askin’ a lot. Good luck with that mess!
