It must be automatic, without touching command-line at all.

I tend to agree - if not completely automatic, at least wizard-driven.

Though I'm an openSUSE evangalist, I cannot *wait* for the evil command line
needs for simple admin things (like setting lppasswd) to be gone.

After all, the last time I used a command-line based computer was my Apple II
in 1983. I would hope things have advanced since then.

I miss command line mode in windows. Having to reboot in safemode and back several times to mend a broken video configuration is a nuissance, when a nice text interface would solve the problem in minutes :-P

Once upon a time, when I was in the move, instead of my high resolution display I had to use a "lowly" 1024, but portable. In linux the change was fast, it took me under a minute. In windows Me it was almost impossible, because there was no way to see the display and reconfigure it. Not even going to safemode solved it.

I was very glad how easy was linux >:-)
