Believe me ... the simpler the things are the better. This is valid also for very intelligent people. You can believe me.

I don't. I'm perfectly happy recommending Mint to someone. It has everything they'll need, will run fine on XP machines, and has gui frontend for everything.

Making things simpler is the developer's prerogative, advanced users such as your good self IMHO, should either join them or help the new user adapt, not encourage his/her Windoze habits and fancies.

+1 to that, my Linux journey began with Ubuntu (8.10 Intrepid Ibex) and i switched to Mint after tiring of it in six months. I must confess Mint made me very complacent, honestly, it's that easy and convenient to use and will be on one my partitions for life. My move to Debian is fairly new as is my desire to "look under the hood". :-)

So what is stopping you from making this package?
