This is a quote of a couple of mails back, but I wanted to say: why  
always keep "the normal desktop user" in mind as a someone who cannot  
do anything right and would prefer to keep on using the most basic  
applications? Surely, they'll never be power users, but it isn't a  
bad idea to try and help them become more powerful in the way they  
use their operating system. After all, they're not on Windows anymore...

(This does not necessarily pertain to the current discussion.)
