This is certainly an option.  With Linux we have that ability.
Windows users don't.

I don't think that is the intent.  I don't think this is the intent of
the Gnome3 developers either.  However, as Linux moves from a niche to
prominenance we are going to pick up the ID10Ts that will click on a
button just to see what happens and then cry when their Gnome
installation is broken and cannot follow obviously simple
instructions.  Then they go out and trash Linux.  Never mind they
brought this upon themselves, Linux sucks and that is their mantra.
Yes, those of us that know better will have to suffer.

Hopefully, Gnome3 will bring more folks into the light and see Windows
for the brokenness it is.
