Most people just starting out need only the one dropdown with a list of
devices and no more :) But I think that would be minimal a few steps too
Many people already have trouble realizing that after opening qjackctl and
setting it up they also have to start jack.
While I personally had no problems with these ideas when I started out, I
came from a CLI/cables and boxes background. Many new users have never
even plugged a guitar/keyboard into an amp and even starting an audio
server is new.
Linux and Linux Audio are very flexable (I love it), but new people to the
concept require support or will give up. Many ask a question on IRC and
are gone in 60 seconds if no one answers, even with text when they join
the channel that says wait. The Linux is no good comments from people are
mostly for this reason. Very few of these people have done enough
recording/producing to be frustrated with limits that an auto setup system
