I did not mean to creat a whole new distrib!!!! MAybe I've got it
wrong... but that's what it says in your www page... But now i've given
it 2nd thoughts.... would be great to start, ie, RH installation with a
	1) Newbie
	2) Experienced
and, of course 2) would be the standart RH distrib, 1) would include the
whole help stuff, but IN NO WAY would lose any of Linux Great features
and applications! I would hate to see linux lose it's power if favour of
ease of use!!

As sb. mentioned in a RE: to my mail, Of course hypertext is perfect for
this :). Maybe we could use Lynx ? That depends upon a lot of different
factors... too early to discuss about that yet.
It would be great if both projects would merge.. Maybe our idea (or mine
in particular) was to improve Linux in the End-user (specially the
newbie) ease of use. We sysadmin might not be as helped in the short
term....BUT as  the ease of use improves, more companies would be ready
to port their products to Linux. I mean, I'm under NT right now.WHY???
Have to do Graphic Design... there's no CorelDraw / Photoshop / Caligary
Truespace for Linux ... yet! I'd love to get rid of all the space this
bloody NT eats up and use it for my Linux! but cant' do that because i
need progies! Get the point? Anyone interested in the original mails
that made linuxng mail list come to live, please mail me and i'll
forward them with pleasure.
	I have personally no problems in merging with SEUL. I mean, Linux has a
lot of groups doing the same thing in parallel. That's definetely a
WASTE of TIME and EFFORT!. Please, Erik, let's try to make only one
group. Anyway, everything was just starting in here. Tell us if what you
are currently doing is what we were thinking of doing in this group

Contrary to popular belief, Unix is user friendly. It just happens to be 
very selective about who it decides to make friends with.
