Our best foot forward

I spent several hours last week writing emails regarding making 
improvements to how packages are configured and how tutorials are done.

I realize now that writing "helper scripts" that would be a hybrid of an 
installation script and a tutorial might not be the best way to get the 
job done.

It would be much better if the "configure" option would take care of 
this and perhaps the "help and support" area search results provided 
specific links to useful Ubuntu specific online information.

I am disappointed that my efforts have come to nothing.

I would recommend more useablility studies to determine whether the 
present set up is actually being found and utilized.

I doubt that Ubuntu's/Linux's best features are being put forward. I 
suspect they are only being found by those who are willing to dig around 
on the net for hours and willing to read trough terse MAN pages.

Good Bye-Patrick
