No. Modern aviation, satellites, all these were direct improved by NASA and could not came from other R&D projects.
Yes, and just to remind that a lot of modern devices and technologies we have in all places now came from R&D from space programs: wireless devices, technology that is now used in devices for detection of heart problems came from the water detection devices used by NASA, the current glass lenses manufacturing process, a lot of the modern aviation technology (including runway, the tower and the airplane), and some minor ones, like modern running shoes, infrared thermometer, the foam used in those "NASA pillows", drinking fountain, modern smoke detectors (that don't trigger with false positives), etc. So it's not "just that scientists want to science".

We even have (here in Brazil) some humor sketches when the couple is talking about get kids out of the school to pay for a popcorn in a movie.

A good web programmer need to know all the flow and involved technologies.
Director's Edition will be the compilation REMOVING all the boring parts, presenting a 3.5 hours movie.

Yeap, I've already done some packages, and it's pretty plan: a compressed file with a file for description/depencencies and paths to install. I got more trouble when tried to create an installer for Windows, because I have to rely on install creators.
Keep PC Settings as default one, and add on it an "Advanced" entry, which will raise Control Panel.
