ironically i am using HostOnly and used it long before the "feature" was proposed

so your argumentation is wrong and you should try to realize that i am often
not against things because they are a problem for *me* but because they are
not a wise idea in the big picture and in case of ordinary users

personally i can deal with most things - many don' as well they don't
understand documentations how to solve a problem or in the worst case
have no access to the documentation because the machine don't boot

oh yeah, teel this the ordinary user which is not a systems administratot

but we had init-ramdisks which worked for *more* users after whatever chnages
now Fedora switched to a more fragile default - the word "feature" for me
implies a benefit - i can't se a benefit in decisions making a OS setup
more windows-like "oh you changed your hardware, i won#t boot" while
this is a problem for the ordinary user and at the same time the educated
one doe snot need the default to save 1-2 seconds at boot while he is aware
about the impact
