What's the most common/popular method of deploying a Linux application ?

It's only 2.5meg so I'm happy to just put the executable file on my website and let people download it as it is but would users think that strange ? or should I put it in a zip or some other type of install package ?

well the most common way is to make a package, .deb is by far more common these days with the rise of ubuntu and other debian derivatives
check out the thread

but its also fine if you just distribute the executable
