Maybe it’s just my OCD speaking, but I dislike the idea of polluting the AppData folder with gigabyte-sized program installs. I think AppData is intended for (surprise) application data only and should be easy to backup. So far I have assumed that Julia defaults to installing in AppData to circumvent permission problems when installing without admin privileges. Is this roughly correct? If so, would it be feasible to change the behavior so that it defaults to Program Files when you install as Administrator?
(I understand the logic that users with admin privileges should be able to change the default install folder themselves, but there’s also a decent argument that the default behavior should be to follow the general usage guidelines of the system.)
