It is equally naive to belive that every system needs fast(er) recovery,
space management and all the other things that multiple partitions can
provide over the space flexability that they take away! 

Not everyone is running a mission critical server where they care
excessively about unlikely failures, most people want something that is
flexable and can adapt to their needs without problem 'need to APT install
200 meg? No problem' type of idea. 

Those are the people Corel is targetting.
