There's a reason you need a drivers license to drive a car.  Perhaps if
our 'new users' were better prepared they wouldn't have such a not 'great

We can advance the whole Linux field faster if we're not so focused on
people that have expressed an interest in not using our software.  Let us
innovate, let the other distros polish and customize as they see fit.
