Maybe it wasn't meant entirely serious but there have been a few people 
over the years whose very first experience with Linux was LFS. They went 
straight from Windows to LFS. Before the LiveCD even existed. Speak of a 
learning curve but they persevered through the curve and came out 
knowing a lot more about Linux in general than many other LFS users. 
Then those people contributed back to the LFS project in useful ways.

You never want to limit the audience. You may miss out on progress.

True, LFS isn't targeted to those people, but if they choose to try 
anyways, let's help them out as best as we can.
