I like it too. But it reminds me of the Mandriva welcome page:

   The welcome "center" could well be the Mageia welcome page, in the same 
sense that the Mandriva welcome page had appeared. It could have your 
suggested layout, and a "help" tab/pane/button that would go to the welcome 
text + have links to help documentation.

Said that, I think a newbie would appreciate a page that would direct him/her 
to some documentation like "What can I do with my new OS?", "How do I access 
my files/programs?" "How can I configure/fix things?" etc.

Said that (flash #2), we may have a dual system of keeping those docs: a cached 
version stored in an rpm[1] package, and a big button on those (html?) pages 
like: "go to latest version of this page on the Internet". That way, an offline 
first installation (before network is functional) will still be able to read 

[1] YES! rpm, not deb, not portage, not .exe or anything else...
Say NO to spam and viruses. Stop using Microsoft Windows!
