Having read with a heavy heart the post from Greg concerning a newbie
experience with Fedora, I kinda figured that what we need is an
orientation document for new users (ie new to Linux) to pick up when
they come to Fedora.
Brief outline below:
Welcome to Fedora Core Linux
Linux concepts (ie root etc)
Gnome - where do I find? Screensaver, desktop background etc
Email - What's this Evolution thing? (potential to include
Thunderbird here because of availabilty on Windows)
Internet - Finding the web
Productivity - Finding OpenOffice.org
, brief intro to each component
IM - Where's AIM or Windows Messenger?
Games - getting your Windows games working under Fedora
Getting support for your graphics card/Installing appropriate drivers
This is just a starting point - feel free to shout down or include any
other areas that you feel would be genuinely advantageous for a newbie
to read about when they first boot into Fedora.
I threw this on the wiki:
As per the FDSCo meeting yesterday, we might as well think of this as a
good test case. Hope I'm not inducing any cringe....
