I agree wholeheartedly with your suggestions. I have one more: We
should provide a clickable link to a graphical tutorial on the Emacs
http://stuff.mit.edu/iap/emacs/emacs-slides-1.pdf seems to be a good
one. It quickly covers the basics such as how to move the cursor.
Then it gets to the useful stuff, such as the kill ring, isearch, etc.
I took a show of hands at my school's LUG meeting today, and only 10%
of the students used Emacs. Nowadays, too many people use non-Free
IDEs. Is there any better way to show people the power of Emacs than
a graphical tutorial?
If I submit a patch to implement this link, will it be accepted?
