The biggest problem is that 99 out of a 100 people have no idea about
their computer than they do about their car. If you read the car
manual, you should probably check the oil and tire air pressure at
least once a week, etc etc. But the majority of people might never
check it beyond making sure that they take the car into the shop when
the light goes yellow.

 They want the same from their computer systems and servers. The
computer is to get them from point A to point B, get the morning mail,
play some games, put up pictures of the family dog. The idea that they
have to check the oil daily is foreign and basically gets put into the
back corner because the computer is supposed to be like a TV set,
radio, or car.
