Indeed. And for those who need selfish reasons to make technology easy,
let's remember that some of us (most of us?) wouldn't be able to afford
computers *at all* if they were not mass market, production-line
commodities. Of course the only reason they are mass market is because
they are easy enough for the majority to deal with, without special
courses, licenses or education.

I for one like cheap things. So, let's let the market do its work by
making stuff easy. We all win!
