Sam's following mail gave me an idea: Provide the user with Fedora "tips
of the day" somewhere in the browser splash page (of course nothing
splashy or popup).

yeah this came up on the marketing list last week iirc. Paul's plug in
works great..

What this is *really* telling me is that, as soon as the capability
exists to host langified spaces on fedoraproject.org, we should use the
browser splash to simply redirect online when possible to the fp.o front
page.  If people can't use *THAT* as a home page/starting up point,
there is something VERY WRONG with it.  (Like, blocker bug level.)

I agree we should do this. If we improve the fp.o front page to make it
have more attractive usability (and more useful info, less linkage
maybe) it could be a great starting page...


Hooray for reducing some of the information and overabundance of links at http://fedoraproject.org  It looks better than a few days ago.  This page: http://www.ubuntu.com/community does a great job of simplicity, friendly, and intuitive navigation :) Others have commented on the "darkness" of the Fedora theme... comparing the two pages I agree, while understanding some of this is simply personal taste.

In terms of being part of the solution, I tried to sign up for a Fedora account a few weeks ago, but got lost in the morass of different registration forms, cross-linked pages, accounts, and requirements.  I plan to give it another shot when I get some time :)
