What would be achieved, if the texmf folder and a subtree would be installed. Those we are concerned about wouldn't know that it exists, and, even they did, they still wouldn't know where to place personal sty files, etc., and all these questions, which could easily be answered by reading the "What is installed" file or simply by googling, would still be asked.

Since these questions have already be answered sufficiently and in great detail over and over again, we should pick one default link where the answer can be found and whenever the question is asked again simply provide the link without any further explanation.
