An advanced windows user knows how to install new hard drives, they
shouldn't have to find the right package to install as well - new drives
should just work.

I reckon our desktop users are much more likely to install a new hard
drive than compile a package. 

I don't know why you think my Ubuntu experience is improved by giving me
less configuration options than Windows.
