There are two separate issues here, I think. The first is something that
introduces great features/benefits of the operating system, this is kind
of a marketing tool and shows off the great aspects of Ubuntu. Hopefully
dapper will have something good in this respect, work is underway
already. But I don't know whether Kubuntu will have something like this.

The second thing is something which introduces a user to the system, in
terms of how to make it work, and so on. Hopefully the desktop guide
goes a long way towards doing this: it is available from the Help Icon
on the panel and in the "System" menu. Maybe having it open
automatically after a new install might be a nice idea.
