Our famous Dad is now trying Ubuntu 11.10
shortened link:

I note that this guy gets hung up on the desktop switcher. I think in
my  earlier commenrts re beginners,  I would leave the switcher until
late in a demo, it can be confusing, although he really likes the idea
and wants to find out.

I also now realise that the two stage action in the switcher action
seems un necessary. Why can it not be a single stage action - one
click takes you fully to the chosen desktop??
