Seating tubeless tyres is the only slight difficulty in the entire process. The easy solution is a boost chamber track pump or compressor. Then it's all easy.
I find dealing with flats out on the road much easier with tubeless. Small holes self-seal and larger ones can usually be sealed with a Dynaplug in literally a few seconds. Fitting a tube is very much a last resort, which I've never had to do.
