All three of those can be used for right or wrong.
I buy damn near everything over the internet. I get exactly what I want from a competitive marketplace. Why can't I buy a car to my exact specifications direct from the manufacturer? If Amazon can deliver almost anything to my front door, why can't GM, Ford and Toyota deliver a car to my door?
In your scenario your going to hate it when you need warranty work and the dealers tell you that you need to take it to an authorized warranty repair center for directly purchased cars. BTW that service center is three states over.
You mean like how I can't get warranty repair on my Dell because I'm nowhere near Texas? Oh wait, I can. Hell, I can get the tech to come right out to my office and do it on-site, I don't have to take it anywhere. Funny what happens when there's a competitive marketplace, and the ease or difficulty of getting service and support is something consumers consider. Or were you imagining a scenario where car buyers worry less about server than computer buyers? Cars are so cheap, after all. Oh wait...
Something is wrong with either your machine or whatever is controlling the switching. I have never, ever had anything like what you've mentioned and my system has been running for months on end as well. You sir, most likely have non-Windows related problems.
One can always "what if" the situation to weigh in favor of whichever side you want. It's that "significant" and "relevant to the job" that's the cheat in your example. Let's say the CS major had significant course projects that were relevant to the job as well or just drop the significant and relevant from the E Lit candidate.
This does require everyone to actually do their job and not come in pretending they'll be a controlling agent and then jumping the big boss like they're a tank. Or worse, pretending they'll heal and jumping into every fight.
Know what you're doing and do it effectively and even a randomly organized team will quickly leave you alone as far as orders.
