What do you think 90% of our users change in second stage?

Setting up a printer comes to mind, entering the DSL provider user ID and
password (for those who don't have a WiFi/DSL router), to name just two.

Printer can be detected and configured automatically without user's
interaction (I don't remember when last detection failed for me),
additionally, CUPS 1.3 offers some kind of autoconfiguration (I have not yet
tried it).

DSL modems without routers are very rare nowadays IMHO (at least in the Czech
republic, cannot speak for the rest of the world). Additionally, more than
half of sold computers are nowadays laptops, where you require some mobility
and prefer NetworkManager.
