As you have noticed, LilyPond is fairly different from most other programs
you have used in Windows. Among others, it's one of the programs where you
cannot really expect to be able to do anything useful unless you have
read the Tutorial.

I doubt very many users are under the impression that LilyPond can
only create one scale.  However, I do think this message suggests that
we consider what purpose the introductory file is supposed to serve
and whether it does a good job of that.  My guess is that it might be
better to use a larger, but still simple, example that will
immediately show that LilyPond produces higher-quality sheet music
than other software.
