Hello everyone.

If you were going to write a book about Gnome, which topics in what order will be included in your book? Assuming that the installation is already done and user will see the login window after he turn on the computer.

Thanks.

I'd start off with some humour = Gnome panel



In all respect when it first came out it probably was up to standards.
but I certainly won't be writting a book about Gnome.

You need a 'this is not what Gnome is' chapter. With gnomes.

I'd image something along the lines

Chapter 1: Collect Underpants
Chapter 2: ????
Chapter 3: Profit

I won't be writing a book about it either, but I'd address all the nice features, programs, etc.

Later in the book, I would address the downfalls, including ubuntu's need to use gnome dependencies to make things easy even though we don't want those depencies, as well as GNOME Shell.
