For me, the selling point was distant terrain. The idea that I could view halfway across the island was a compelling reason to install OpenMW. Right now I am struggling with installing Tamriel Rebuilt. If it were easier to install TR with OMW that too would make a compelling reason to switch.
Sorry to hear that. I also think that the mod installation should be made a little bit easier before version 1.0. In my opinion, you should be able to manage data files directories and bsa archives in the OpenMW launcher.
However, your problem is easily solved. You just have to done it once to understand it.
(you only need 1 version)
Download Tamriel Rebuilt
Now, extract these files with 7-zip or whatever works for you.
You could just put the contained files into your Morrowind\data files directory, but a way that is more practical in the long run is adding seperate data files directories.
Just move the extracted files to any folder where you'd like them to stay.
Then open your config file
Windows: C:\Users\Username\Documents\my games\openmw\openmw.cfg (username will vary, as may drive and language)
Mac: /Users/Username/Library/Preferences/openmw/openmw.cfg (username will vary, as may language)
where you can search for the key word "data=" and add your own two lines of: data="path\to\your\new\directories"
Finally, you should search for the key word "bsa" and add the names PT_Data.bsa and TR_Data.bsa in the same fashion as the vanilla bsa files that are probably already registered.
Now you can just activate the mod like any other Bethesda plug-in.
