And I do want computers being easier to use, but mucking around with the BIOS settings? Well, so far from what I've seen of the general population, I'm surprised we don't have warning labels on hammers saying "WARNING: HURTS IF YOU HIT YOURSELF"
Basically, your entire arguement rests on the point that you want the BIOS navigation to more difficult? That would just be a GUI.
I do EVGA help desk on the side and making the BIOS navigation would make the job EASIER. Basically, anyone who access it would access it anyway and anyone who wouldn't doesn't.
What is stopping people from messing up their BIOS settings today? "Complexity"? That is an extremely weak arguement.... Throw up an artifical wall of difficulty does not do much against people who break things but makes diagnoistics much harder.
