Re: Default interface in the "front page"?

If the user has not selected a default interface at Edit -> Preferences -> Capture, I'd vote to have Wireshark select 
the first interface listed in which Wireshark determines that there are actually packets available to >capture.  This 
can be seen with Capture -> Interfaces (Ctrl-I).  If no interfaces show packets, then Wireshark can probably just 
choose the first interface.

I'm afraid that would over complicate things. If we can get people to select a preferred interface in the preferences 
it's a once off thing probably.
