Some readers have been saying that they want us to provide more detailed information about software installation in every issue. We already have the Newbie Zone pages and tutorials on the DVD each issue, but it seems they want more. Problem is, we're a bit unsure what to do - if we expanded Newbie Zone to six pages each issue it would mean regular readers would get six pages of nearly identical content each month: "how to install software" and such.
So, please post a comment below on what you'd prefer us to do. Unless you have another idea, your options are:
- Do nothing
- Add two or four pages to Newbie Zone, always covering how to install software
- Add two or four pages to Newbie Zone, covering a different super-newbie topic each month (installing software, getting new hardware to work, etc; there would be a list of four or so ideas we'd cycle through.
And if we're going to add content, should we try to make it distro agnostic, or should we try to focus it on a particular distro so that we can be specific?
I consider LXF to be a fairly expensive magazine, which makes me naturally averse to the idea of just reprinting text each issue. But if you guys think it would help newbies stick with Linux, then we could give it a shot. Over to you!
