don't want to customize things that should just work;
That's why in M$'s software you have plenty of places that say "Advanced
The people you talk about, casual users, just see the words "Advanced"
on a tab in a dialog box and think to themselves "ok, I'm not advanced,
no need to look there and get confused. I'll just ignore that tab.".
And everybody is happy - power users can tweak those things that bother

painted on them.
