Less is more -- not!
This is the trend over the last couple of decades. Everyone is dumbing down everything these days. Most newer laptops don't have indicators for hard disk activity. Win10's menus are very vague, and good luck figuring out how "Preparing to configure Windows" for an hour actually relates to what might be going on inside your computer.
Unfortunately when people think they're being somehow smart by dumbing everything down, you end up with even dumber people in the populace over time.
