You don’t need less configuration

Don’t complain about things (computers, Linux installations, Desktops and Window Managers) being too customizable!

Ask for either administrator locked customizations or customization themes.

If you have to administer a thousand workstations and the users can customize themselves to hell and back twice over, then I can understand you do not want too many customization options open to the user

Lobby for administrator locked customizations (a customization setting in itself, of course!)

If you feel like starting your computer and trying to set it up is like entering the cockpit of a Boeing 777, then I can also understand that you would like less customization options you had to worry about

Lobby for a function like a customization theme, where you can download a set of customization settings from the web or get them from a friend.

See, in both these scenarios you’re not really in the need of less configuration, you’re in the need of different configuration…

…if you disagree, buy a Mac! 😛
