For me the andvantage of the easy installation is higher.

You can leave the base Linux system as it is.

But if you want to install a hand full of special Apps you can do it fast.
If there is a security bug, then (easy) update your hand full of Apps.

If I make an App I do it always in a separate directory with minimum 
dependencies. So you have it easy and a have good overview of the needed app 
and data files.
