"Once you know what you're doing".

When guests arrive at your site, they don't want to spend 20 minutes 
following intricate docs. Especially if their meeting is only 30 minutes.

Sure *I* can get any of those systems online in under a minute. The 
concern is how fast a short-lived guest can get online. Our web-based 
"staff create a guest account" portal takes only seconds. Walking the 
user through cert installation takes a lot longer.
