Not true.

And even when they click it, they find that JACK is running on their
builtin hardware when they wanted it to use some USB device they have.
Then they can't figure out how to change it.

You're way, way, way too much of an expert with computers Fons. There
are lots and lots of musicians for whom things you consider utterly
obvious and child-like are really quite difficult concepts.

they have no idea what's inside.

the number of people who do not even realize that you need to tell
JACK which device to use is quite startling.
