not the users, no. The app developers. They should know what bad applications can cause to a nicely done system.

Robust system design can take crap and perform well. Users will most of
the time prefer a robust system over a nicely designed system. (Just
think of the ak-47)

(hope you're talking about the gun :-p)
put some bad bullets on ak-47 and see if it behaves well, a really crappy trigger will also make it fail. How robust can a system be with badly chosen components ?
