I was thinking we could do another one of those rotating ads like on the
fedoraproject.org main page.  You know, the ones with Paul's face or when a
release gets close?
I'm not a big fan of the 'pop something up when they login' idea of
Microsoft lore, but maybe there's a less intrusive way to get it onto the
desktop.  We could just drop an
icon on the desktop that says 'Getting Started with Fedora' which would
launch Miro and put them into the Fedora rss feed directly?  I'm not 100%
sure I like this idea, but
its a thought.

Cheers,

Clint
