I know this isn't Windows and 'man' is always there, but ...


What's better ...

1) Lots of people asking questions on the forum that they could answer for themselves, because they

1.1) don't know about 'man

1.2) don't know what to topic 'man' for

or

2) Lots of people not asking questions on the forum that they could answer for themselves, because

2.1) they've already answered them for themselves? emosmile

Also, 'man' doesn't cover E and when I'm mucking around with config dialogues and want to know what a particular feature does exactly, it would be so much easier just to hit F1 and get some help than to have to root around on the web and hope that

3.1) the answer is out there somewhere

3.2) I've phrased the question in exactly the right way to actually find that answer

---

Finally, a GUI reader for 'man' would be better than having to dump 'man' pages to text files and then open them with an editor


As I said, I know this isn't Windows

But, what's better ...

4) A lot of people not adopting eLive, because they can't get their heads around it, even though they want to like it

or

5) A lot of people adopting eLive becaue they can get their heads around it and really like it?


I don't know if Coolman is any good, but something would be better than nothing emosmile

Thanks
