"generic drugs" is the one thing nobody wants to have in context honestly

why? "not specialized" means "i can likely do anything i want with that" and is true

it is the exactly right message for any user which has no clue
what the products may mean for him or if he is unsure which
one is the best - so in doubt just use "standard" and later
install whatever you need as all the years before is the
correct decision

why would you try to force somebody to a "prodcut setup"
if he can't give you an answer to the question "which"?
