Full Squats

Why is it so few people actually do full squats? I see plenty of people at the gym doing quarter squats and some half squats but very rarely do I see full squats. I do realize that full squats require more flexibility and it's not as easy to use heavy weight but what happened to full range of motion...

Herve, pehaps you could answer something for me..How hard was it going from a business degree to obtaining the CSCS? I have my MBA and I am currently studying for the CSCS.

Thanks,
