If you are serious about user-friendliness in regards to novices, then
don't add another layer of configuring tool, especially not for
applications that are unimportant for the novice, instead start with
providing a consistent GUI design. The starting point is by default to
just provide apps with a menu bar or without a menu bar, instead of
providing an inconsistent mix off default apps. If the beginner isn't
confused by an inconsistent GUI, he is open to learn how to e.g.
configure a firewall, assumed it should be useful at all regarding the
user's needs. Configuring software is easier to do, if you don't provide
layers of configuring tools.
