I fully agree with that. What about setups, that differ in
functionality. E.g. you choose USER and there is no possibility to
format a disc with 2.88M, but when you choose EXPERT you can fully
access all routines?
Place this global and the user who only can use his TV and wants to
surf in the trendy internet now is satisfied. ;-)
The first action the EXPERT does, when he compiled a new GNOME is to
set it in EXPERT mode.

You really have to decide where you draw the line between features
that are usefull and features that are useful for marketing purposes!
I personally think that everybody loves features that are usefull and
enhance the productivity.
