I learned the background of Fedora 8 (also Fedora 7) is dynamic i.e. it
changes in real-time. Perhaps we should take advantage of that feature.
Some applications like Blender has customizable UI as it is possible to
create say Fedora theme (hint hint Mola).
Another possibility is to create a guide tour for the beginner. Overall,
we will have to tap all potential of the desktop.
