2) if still in moron-mode, ask to keep any rubbish on the hard
disk (default: YES) and it dual boot with windows.
And install as much as possible office, games stuff.

Right. And never ask in the default workflow about which window
to use. Cause a new user doesn't know and care about this.

But this is all to much to understand to our beloved KDE and Gnome

When do we finally manage to keep it simple stupid?

When somebody volunteers to simplify it :-)

No. As long as we try to treat KDE and Gnome coequal this will not

From the YaST code this is easy to implement.

But as long as the majority of the develeopers and advanced users do
not agree on making the install work flow as simple and easy as
possible nothing will change.

It seems to me that at most it is a question of adding a tickbox that
says "Simplified installation", and amending the installation process
to whatever we think is simple. We already have a tickbox
for "automatic configuration" that works in a similar way.
