it's not userfriendly? that's the whole point of it actually. and
X based GUIs are way nicer than text based GUIs.
and it's also not userfriendly to go and say "go read the package
descriptions". that's ok for advanced users, I doubt a beginner,
overwhelmed with new things, can handle that. the frustration
level is maybe a bit too high and dump debian altogether. so why
hinder ease of use? :)

so long
