In Ubuntu there's a "Help" button on the top menu bar that leads to a
nice help application, yelp. We have that app too, but it doesn't
seem to have the same contents, which are:
New to Ubuntu?
Adding and Removing Software
Files, Folders and Documents
Customising Your Desktop
Music, Videos and Photos
Keeping Your Computer Safe
Printing, Faxing and Scanning
And under each section there's a clear explanation of what to do.
Maybe we have something equivalent for Fedora, but I can't find it.
Perhaps this is something you could raise separately with the Fedora
Docs team. I'm just getting back from some travel during which I
caught wind of some new documentation standards being produced by the
GNOME docs community to make documentation more task-based, with which
I agree whole-heartedly. Also, our own Docs team is working on
providing an easy way for people to retrieve and install
language-specific documentation such as a user guide which would
integrate into the desktop menu system. (I'm pretty sure that
integration is desktop environment-neutral.) The confluence of those
two developments might provide some better docs at the desktop level.
