I believe this is an exaggeration.  Exaggerations aren't useful in
discussion such as this one.

IME, both the Emacs undo and undo-tree are similarly seamless for
simple use cases, which cover 80% of their use.  Once more complex
situation arise, my opinion is that undo-tree is more complex and
harder to grasp than the Emacs undo, so I don't think undo-tree is
better suited to newbies than the default undo.
