End Users indeed are concerned. May be not with the

deployment. When we build and distribute Desktop Applications, end users
assume that they can just install the application through a setup file and
its done. When they want a backup, they just need to click on a "Backup Menu
Item" and enter the "Save As" file name.
But how does that relate to having or not having a certain software
component which the user would never go and see?
As you rightly said, all that users want is a button to back up, button
to restore, may be a button to change the server location etc.
These are the perspectives of end users. Now it doesnt
matter if we use
My-SQl or any other DB, the users are concerned with ease to deploy....
And performance, which is the responsibility of the developer. And I am
dead sure a toy database for personal level data is never going to be
choice for a big accounting software.
Again end-users are if different types. A sysadmin is an end user and a
data entry person is an enduser as well.
