I read over the Linux Start Pack at
This magazine is published by Linux Format.
I liked it because its very user-friendly, therefore, a good sales tool
for people thinking about switching from Windows to Linux. The
majority of the article is a comprehensive User Guide. The magazine
came with a Live CD for Ubuntu so folks could follow along with the user
guide and really get a feel for Linux and the distro. The article is 130
pages with about 85% - 90% being the user guide.
We should consider doing something like this when we can. We
could follow a similar format and put it out in magazine form, if we
have the resources, put it on the web, or both.
What is a user guide? Maybe some docs putted and linked together in a form
which is more friendly with screenshots and tips?
I think there is a huge power at Docs and L10n project and the material is
really good. So, for start we can try to put together all the stuff and
reconfigure it (screenshots, tips) in a more "user friendly" way.
If we have good written, user friendly docs in many languages we don't have
to do something from scratch.
It would be large project but worthwhile for getting
the word out about Fedora.
Small touches, small entries and the guide will be ready on a sec! :)
Browse through it if you get a chance and see what you think.
