better is a very subjective think. obviously that was the intentions of the guy(s) that started it. you can install it wherever you wish. just read their documentation. you can always install things from source if you want.

You install source packages (end in .tar.gz or .tar.bz2 normally) with this process:

tar -xzvf filename.tar.gz
tar -xjvf filename.tar.bz2
cd filename
./configure && make && su -c 'make install'
Hope this helps.
