Agree Antonio.
First time I've open my kubuntu, I've been lost, and spend 2 days
crawling the web for a pacman-like. Never heard about packages, cause
coming from M$.

People need an welcome app, telling them how to do simple task. And
maybe some advanced thing, like how to use the "send me a note"
