Users, especially newbies, do not like terminal, and digging into configuration files. Many of them are using Windows in dual-boot and wish to have access to their files without special knowledge.
Benefit to Fedora
Fedora is now easy, but some questions, like ntfs write support require digging into terminal. Letting user to not use terminal is good. It's mostly usability improvement.
Requires approving package and putting into LiveCD and DVD in autostart.
- Create LiveCD with disk-manager and test if it really works and makes life easier.
ntfs-3g on the same ISO (done already).
- Leave ISO untouched and tell users to install disk-manager when ntfs write support is needed.
- Do not afraid to tell me what you think.
