Some more ideas for the tour too, but I don't know if they are official
features or not and thus would make the tour too long?

- Technology preview: GNOME Shell

- Totem has some new really awesome features such as playlist sharing
and a BBC video viewing plugin (although on both counts I did not have
much success getting them to work :( )

- Tablet support gets better with each Fedora release. It might be cool
to point out that (1) no xorg.conf is needed for pressure sensitive
wacom tablets, they work out of the box (2) xournal is a virtual
notebook great for tablets and even without tablets (3) cellwriter is a
handwriting recognition application that works great (4) inkscape and
gimp of course rock with a tablet
