To those familiar with SUSE, a no preselection is understood as a statement
too. A not nice statement, for the majority.

It's like setting emacs as the default editor (or vi): it's a statement
about the 'others'.

We do have vi as the default editor. I don't remember ever anybody
considering that a political statement or us forcing users to make a decision

And I wonder wheter the luxury of having one click less is worth
tenderly and inadvertently yet unavoidably stepping on the toes of 1/3
of our users?

And now imagine 2/3 of our users, with their toes already sore.
