Services installing supported only on servers?

Someone at MS should be sent to learn the Windows architecture - it looks they hired too many Linux developers who don't know that services are actually "daemons" - applications started at boot which doesn't require an interactive session to run - even on desktops - and which are a bit more powerful than "background tasks", although many silly services (i.e. some update checkers) could be better that kind.
