For me or you it isn't. For a lot of users it is.

SOme years ago, the only people who used a computers or had one at home
were people who were at least sideways interested in computers. You put
out a very valid point. Users and their knowledge have changed.

A few years ago it would have been normal to just do a download with ftp
under dos, put stuff on a floppy and then start installing and
downloading.

Now people want to jusr download the iso, burn it and run Linux, which
explains the success of Ubuntu. So what must happen is a paradigm shift.
