I've added ideas for Home use, but as Italo, I prefer working on structuring
a document that introduce ideas than collecting them on a wiki.
So I'll work with Italo on the Business and Gov parts if he needs me and
will propose some content for Education and Home after the week end (I hope
I get enough time).

Kind regards

That sounds great Sophie. If you and Italo want to collaborate in a
document format we will integrate this into the ideas generated on the

Yes, no problem, only the format is easier I think for Italo and me (old school you know ;-) to work on, but the final thing have to go on the wiki where the collaborative work is to be done.

After we have gathered the content (text, images, etc) together I
think it would be best to get some of our design brothers and sisters
to integrate this into a snappy layout with punch lines which then
links to more detailed content.

I will continue to work on more detailed content for the ideas that I

Just one thing I think is important to keep in mind and I wanted to share with all of us: keep it simple.

Users coming to open source are quiet shy, they need to be reassure by very simple words and usage, even if it means not showing the killer apps we are very proud of, just something that talk easily to them and do not put them in a posture where they could feel impressed or lost is very important. Few words, great pictures, simple path :-)
