Yes, valid reasons from their point of view and under different
circumstances. Very early in the thread I wrote that this is not a
professional survey with preliminary researxh, defined collection of
users, etc., etc., so all those reasons which are correct in a
professional environment do not apply here in the same way.

Yes, from a marketing point of view of a company who produce consumer
goods you are quite right. As you may have seen, there is enough room
for inventions - I did not ask for favorite packages of backgrounds, I
asked for features.
