Actually, it can be fully automated without so much as a confirmation
dialog, if you want, on Windows 2000 and later, I believe.  Would I
personally want it so?  No, but I set it up that way on all my
relatives' computers.  :-)

Sure.  Well, my question's been answered: modern distributions by and
large all have some approximation of this feature.  The last time I
installed Linux, lo these many years ago, this was not the case.

And lastly, while I appreciate your input, if you don't find this
discussion about a specific feature of Linux meaningful or useful, you
always have the option of just not participating.
