I don't think too many things are difficult here at DreamHost, far from it, but as a hosting company I don't think they are really targetting the absolute beginner.
Also, some things ARE done a little differently here at DreamHost, this doesn't make them inferior, just different.
In fact, I have found DreamHost to be much less restrictive than other hosts.
