No normal in a sense as using the power button starting up the  
program that is used to edit text, starting up the program that I can  
use to surf the internet.

Unfortunately (at least in my experience) the "uneducated-and-don't- 
want-to-learn" are normal users.

In that sense having to code something goes far beyond normal (being  
defined as what the majority knows).
