RE: Selecting applications

   To me this is sort of like saying "A woman doesn't have to be good
looking to make you happy."  While this is VERY true, a good looking
woman will make you walk across the room. :-)  Some one else has said
that a bad install will keep new people from trying Linux.  "If I can't
even get the thing installed, how can I run it?"  We do need to have a
minimum level, clean, easy install, or people will never look at the
cool apps we find.

   I wish I could help, but I am still up to my eyeballs in the AutoDocs
for the reasons above. :-)  Once I get that done, perhaps. :-)
