I'm not sure where this belongs (project, factory?), but we've

Project? Sorry, this has nothing to do with this high level mission
statement stuff.

I disagree. For the "distro openSUSE", it would be a significant change,
even if we would only offer it as an extra button.

Please don't relegate our strategy to "high level mission statement
stuff", that is just not right. Professionally over the last
twentyfive years, I have worked with far too many corporate mission
statements - seen in that respect, I take our openSUSE strategy quite
serious, and I fail to see why others should not.

We don't have the multilevel management structure that is otherwise
typically associated with a top-level mission statement, hence it is so
much more important that the lieutenants working in the trenches are
aware and trying to enforce it.

And it's also nothing for Factory. Cause we need people to vote on
it. Our tool for a suggestion like this is the feature tracking tool,

OTOH, we could just implement it and see what happens. That has often
been the preferred path of the past.

Therefore is the way to go.

In principle, I completely agree. In practice, I'm leaning more towards
just doing it.

With your comment there it looks to me like you well understood the
intention. And advanced user will be able to enable the needed
avdvanced settings screen. This screen would be identical with
install process as it is at the moment.
How to name ithis all at the end is up to a native spaker and/ or the
marketing team.


The goal is to make it for beginners easier to jump on the train while
not throwing out the old passengars.

Very well said. Also, we don't want to upset the old/elderly passengers
either. (to anyone wondering, I am an old passenger on this train).
