The requirements make it quite clear we are not targeting absolute
n00bs. We're targeting folks who know how to drive a machine but simply
don't have Linux or open source experience. 

The page is not trying to target Grandma. Believe me, it would look a
LOT different if it was.

As I challenged you to do earlier, show me the mockup. I've tried to
make it and pkilled inkscape in utter disgust. Lack of design skills is
no excuse - make squares on a canvas and label each with where you'd
have these things go. A wireframe is fine.

Did you not look at the spins mockup? The desktop spin is placed on
