> Thus, the need for the warning. Experts tend to know what they are doing, newbies don't for the most part. And yes, I borked many a system as a newbie and as an expert (building kernels for RedHat/Fedora for my Thinkpad.
Yep. The problem is that newbies are coming from Windows - (a) where
the answer to inability to do something is to try again as

1. Get better newbies. (Strikes me as unlikely.)
2. Something to help stop them shooting their foot off that won't
hamper those who really want to do this.
