Putting the Linux Desktop Closer to the User
The use of LiveCD's has helped many curious people discover Linux.

But, while this makes Linux available without having to install the distribution on a hard drive, it doesn't necessarily help a new user navigate around the system and/or understand Linux any better. New users could use a blueprint to go along with the LiveCD. Our product team has done that and in this article we tell you how and why.
