"Simple" != "better." I, for one, like the logic behind my root partition always being in /dev/hda3 on Slackware, Debian, Red Hat, SuSE, Gentoo, et cetera ad nauseam. Don't knock it till you have a good reason (i.e. other than "Cuz it's too complicated and too hard too install stuff and bad for newbies").
