Taking after this idea. I have been told a couple of times about the difficulty of a change that using openSUSE entails for new users. A couple of people suggested to me, through my blog, about adding videos that could explain how key elements work in openSUSE. Software installation, menus, virtual desktops, etc. Maybe, the slideshow used in the installation could have a more "educational" purpose. It could explain these tasks through images and simple text as well as the other slides that promote important power user tools for people.
Sorry with 12 slides they are showed between 30s and a minute u can definitly not educate a user. For the video thing, u know we talk about the installer here! Show videos mean the installer would grow bigger, need more RAM and CPU and slow down the installation process. And that dont accept a lot of users
After the installation I find sometimes such a nice geeko with a life saving ring, maybe u should klick it sometimes and find a cool edicational tour then ;) Maybe she can be better but remember unix philosophy one tool for a task. So the installer is for installing the system, it has a slideshow integrated but it has borders what we can do with that! We should definitly not try to change the installer in a "educational program"

* describe the new stuff we get (for the old timers) * describe some steps the user may not know if he come from windows (admin name is root, config center is YaST, to install software use YaST...) and so on. not more than 10 rules a newcommer have to know.
could have tags (old-timer/new on linux)
these a just to make time shorter when one wait for the end of the install.
