Userfriendly to whom?

To you, to desktop users, to me, to everybody.

Nobody can dare to say every aspect of getting Xen  and VMs on it
runinng is pure fun and very simple. But what anant says, and I agree
is, it should be, for everyone.

It's not always easy to build software that is at the same time very
simple and easily to get started(which less "educated" users need, but
an admin is also happy when getting a software installed in lesse than
3 hours, or even days), but still powerful and configurable in every
detail(which an admin needs to take full advantage of all
But that is actually big part of the art of making software - it's one
point where the decision between "working" software and "superb"
software is made.

That said, it is right that sometimes one has to focus on a target
group of users(especially because it's hard to get it good for
multiple groups): saying Xen focuses mainly or even only on
administrators for use in datacenters, makes the whole discussion
about user-friendlyness pointless.
