Exactly. Most applications are workbench based, and the discs and their contents accessed directly, copied to HDD if there isn't an installer, and aliases setup in the startup sequence if required.

WHDLoad is more designed for games and demos that come on disks which can't be read using workbench. It images the contents of these disks into that data or image files you find within a whdload installed games and also provides the actual install to allow it to load from HDD.
