GNU/Linux (and Fedora) is different to what a lot of new users will
have been used to, and some sort of a welcome wizard which just points
them in the right direction for common items, i.e. software installer
etc might be useful.
I have no idea if other people think this would be worthwhile, or how
you might go about creating it! Thoughts?
You're thinking of a local/fat application? Something that is kicked
off by the completion of firstboot?
What about putting that into the welcome page for the browser, and
auto-starting Firefox? Whatever that page looks or acts like, it could
have a nicely visible "New Users Start Here" widget that kicks off what
you are describing.
It sounds like a confluence of tool and content/media creation, so it is
like an interactive tour.
