It has been suggested by several people in this thread to have a 'debian-newcomer' list.
Question: Is there real interest in having this and how many users will subscribe in order to help the newcomers (from "doze" or Mac or other distros)? A name or nick as an answer i think will do. I'll start with myself though i'm quite a modest guy (really) :)
This gets asked on this list every six months or so; see the archives.
In short, the general consensus is that having a newcomer list is a bad
idea (for several reasons, which can be found in the archives).
