Sometimes people are intelligent but that doesn't mean that they are willing 
to spend days just to fix these problems, maybe being intelligent doesn't make 
you interested in learning obscure switches for debian. (and knowing these 
doesn't make one intelligent).

So it's not about stupid users, it's about having a configuration that works 
by default, without requiring people to go throu mailing lists to learn what 
they need to install debian and have it working.
