it's not a question of competition.

People already using Linux don't need really more help than
what we already give (fine tuning they distro)

the people that needs to now how to organise they desktop
are mostly new computer users (are they some?) or windows
users. period.

I won't focus on windows. It's already done (there is a page
"migrating from windows" on the wiki.

We need to focus on application sharing.

Say. I was a writer. I buy a brand new numerix camera. How
can I organize my new photo collection?

My new camera come full of windows products, and nor you nor
I can change this. I wich I couls save some bucks refusing
these stuff... so How may I work? We can give an answer. We
shoul even give many answers. I have mine, you have your,
detail how you work, I will adapt this to my way.

most users di this through Google, but such doc is quite
scarce, if we have it we will attract the users.
