Help for other APPs should be shipped as part of that APP and linked 
into the existing help system once the app is installed.  so forinstance
doing a search on Netscape Mail will come up blank if Netscape isn't 
installed but give proper instructions if it is.  

Linking it into the search system is the critical next step that no 
existing OS provides.  Talk about competitive edge ?  

Why not just include help for other apps in a help distribution ?
2 reasons.  
1 : Help needs to change when the apps do.
2 : The system must be completely open ended, so you can invent a 
whole new app category, like KDE Drancing ( A program to produce music 
by watching you dance )
