Note that if you're unfamiliar with computers, it's helpful to be able
to trust the default install to “do the right thing” too wrt. security.
Even if “home user” might not have security concerns as high as
“business users”, I think they'd prefer their private stuff to stay
private, wether it's their family pictures, their bank account stuff, or
something else. It applies to various other threats too.
