I think your solution here is System center configuration manager which allows you to publish applications available for install on the domain. The user can then go to their control panel > advertised programs and just select for a software package to be installed.

+1 for TomTom. Make that an answer and I'll upvote it in a minute. I appreciate that SCCM has "Publishing" functionality but it's built-in to Group Policy "out of the box". – Evan Anderson Feb 24 '12 at 22:05
