I know people who still believe that Linux and Unix are simply job 
programs for gurus because "the average computer user can't administer 
their own computer" if they're using it.  I'd think that having distros, 
such as Ubuntu, that can be installed and administered by people without 
specialized skills would be a Good Thing.  Still, I'd also like even the 
most beginner friendly distro to have some sort of advanced option on 
installation to let those of us who know what they want and how to get 
it the ability to set things up their own way.
