You might be asking the wrong group. Experts and Guru's arent the 
demographic, so they dont work well as a focus group. Our toys arent their 
toys. Even on the same subject such as editors or mp3 players they want 
different than we tend to recommend. Our toys tend toward complication and 
allowing lots of manual manipulation.

Someone needs to follow a newbie thru the process. Note what things he 
expected to just be there and be working. Try to mass-install and 
inter-config it all so that the newb doesnt have to answer anything.

ALLOW but try to avoid "better" more involved programs. Thats up to the 
user to pin down later. The one or two things he is willing to put up with 
some complications to get a better toy.

are guru's."
