But where's the line? Ignoring the outliers, I strongly suspect that the 97% of users running fairly close to off-the-shelf Intel/AMD boxes all fall into the same category, and I suspect that those running on other fairly modern off-the-shelf hardware also fall in the same boat. There's thousands of issues where it's possible that the choice may not be optimal for odd hardware, but it's far easier and more efficient to pick a standard choice than have every user check their system.
