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