Yeah, now we just have to figure out a way to let all those regular 
users who are under the incorrect assumption that they must be power 
users because they once downloaded/installed a <insert GNU/Linux distro 
here> ISO that they are in fact not power users...  (Or, worse yet, 
someone who has been a Windows sys admin for 10 years...)

Unfortunately, those who don't have the experience to decide whether 
they actually want a FreeRunner without that text are probably most 
likely to incorrectly assume they must be power users.

Mike (who hopes to be a good beginner of a power user in 30 years, but 
who actually did/does want his FreeRunner)
