Features that would be great for Fedora 10

Here are just few features that I believe would be great for Fedora 10 to have:

1. RFE: Add desktop folder with examples of what "fedora thing" can do :)

Lisa gets Fedora 10 Live CD from her Joe (her geeky boyfriend) and
puts it in her laptop. After she gets presented with a different
looking desktop that
she is usually presented she doesn't know what this "fedora thing"
actually does and can do. Joe gives her a CD version of Ubuntu, after
loosing temper with trying to explain what fedora can actually do.
Lisa puts Ubuntu CD in and after few minutes she clicks through a few
examples on her new desktop and sees that this "Ubuntu thing" does
more that that "Fedora thing" like plays music & videos, shows nice
spreadsheets and other documents.

It would be great for Fedora to add directory on desktop with some
nice examples what Fedora and OSS can do. There are great videos on
redhat magazine page and I'm sure there are other great resources -
new users need to be exposed to them in this way. Also there is a
initiative for contriburots to make screencasts and this feature would
be a great match with it if they merged together.

2. RFE: Desktop shortcut for joining Fedora IRC (aka "Get Live Help"):
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=430217 and

Fedora is about freedom+communication, right? Why not make this
statement more that just a nice slogan. If you installed sabayon linux
you could experienced for yourself what this really means. I as a new
user to gentoo (sabayon is based on gentoo) was really blown away with
this feature. It is really, really simple to implement and gives a
real meaning to a communication friendly linux distro.
In sabayon link to their IRC chat has a simple name "Get Live Help"
and it work fabulous! I didn't have any Portage experience so I poped
in IRC chat room and was on my way after I got quick help. Whis kind
of help was precious to me and would love to see it in fedora as one
of it's main features and not just as a slogan.

3. Add abillity to define ntfs mount points in anaconda

We can define ext3, reiserfs, xfs and vfat partition mount points in
anaconda during the install but just ntfs.
