Yes, that's why I always pressed at the linux events I was present, that in 
the past Mandrake/Mandriva and now Mageia is a distribution, that makes it 
easy for newbies to start, but isn't holding back anything for experienced 
Other than yast did in the past and still does in parts, the draktools don't 
overwrite any configuration but parses it correctly.

We have to make it clear, that we do care about newbies but we don't "lay any 
stones in the way" of experienced users.
After all, if we did, most of us wouldn't use it, would we?
