Such a warning message is certainly nice for beginners, but annoying
for everybody else.  Generally, if something doesn't work as expected,
it should be sufficient to look into the manual.  

On the other hand, I don't object if a warning message pops up by
default which contains a button "Don't show this message again".
Of course, it's extra work for the programmers.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
