I agree with your sentiments but I don't think this is really true.
When reinstalling my Microsoft OSs (all 3 -- DOS, 95 and NT) on Saturday
(because I bought a new disk and couldn't find any way to move NT),
it only took about 5 minutes to install 95, and there aren't any hard
questions involved, even with a custom install.
