Whatever you do, DO run it in a container so it is isolated from the rest of 
your system. It will also prevent security issues which will come up with all 
their bundled 'stuff' to infect your host system. It will also make it easy to 
make snapshots, which you will want to make before performing one of the many 
upgrades you'll be forced to make, because they have a tendency to not work.
