You are right.  We should have a better one-box story than we do.
Development is generally off at the other end of the scale, on making
the multinode installs run smooth with a working-one-box getting only
as much attention as it takes to run unit tests and simple loadings.
Our other-than-single-box -- or two to three nodes even -- focus has
probably hurt us over time since thats what noobs start on.  If they
don't get a good feeling running on a small cluster, why would they
expect it to be different when they move beyond that.

Its my sense that If someone was up for working on our one-box story,
they'd only get encouragement.

Thanks for writing,
