This is indeed a problem a problem but I think it's because most
inexperienced users (lambda users in french (sorry I don't know the work
for that in english) have the habit that "it's just works".

This is one of the biggest problems that we face, normal users.
I think that most people were forced to use computers and that is part
of why they don't want to change and they just want it to work without

This is a pedagogical problem and like said before I am working on that
subject to create new approaches to make users understand, to build
bridges so that they can choose without mindlessly clicking next.
