1-click-install OR 5-minute-install?

What are the benefits of each? Which one should I use, when all I want to do is get my blog up and running?

Hi Roman,

I think you are mixing the two of these up.

The one click is a host providing the install for you.

The 5-minute install is manually installing/setting up WordPress 100% you.

Most hosts that provide a one click install is going to be used 99% of the time. The difference would be when you want to do something custom during that install or you are doing the hosting yourself or on a host that does not offer it.
