  It is often said 90% people use only 10% of the features, and to my own
  experience it is true. They buy a product for features they won't use.
  Some are even proud of couple of features of the product they are using,
  but never are using this couple of features  ;-)
  When choosing software/hardware, often people hear good advices from
