First steps of end-users is to install Chrome, Spotify and VirtualBox.
So there is left no advantage of a Free OS.
They are popular but by no means universal. I don't install any of
those three things.
I agree the idea of bash-completion is nice. But it is so severly
it is more a burden than help. Unfortunately I no longer remember all the bugs
I faced before I started removing it years ago but a simple one is:

You're right this is bad - i mistype things all the time and yet hit
tab and it just stalls out and is faster to command C three times and

When it locks up (during updating firmware on my Athlon machine) I see just
a black screen. When I reboot without rhgb/quiet the problem is not
reproducible as it happens only rarely. There are many reasons why kernels
sometimes fail to boot, why to give up on troubleshooting?
I think we need more complete bug reports about these kinds of
problems, and fix them, rather than default to showing startup scroll.
I don't have this problem very often and I use rawhide kernels. And
where I run stable kernels I can't even remember the last time I
needed to see the startup scroll for troubleshooting. It's easy to get
it unhidden though - hit Esc.
