Less than two years ago, EVERYONE knew that Gnu/Linux was for really sad 
geeks and none other.  Normal people use Windows of course.  In the last 
eighteen months or so, that perception has changed.  It is up to us to 
spoonfeed the new potential user without crippling the system as the 
legacy folk seem to have done.  That is our challenge which is why I 
would like to see a change in the way we present the autorun feature.
