    Looks like Chris video has done some good.

    MS are looking at putting some kind of shorcut on the main ui ( the desktop) - some basic instructions so you don't get stuck there.

    They might have it pop up automatically as a little interactive tutorial.


    It is quite astonishing they didn't think about it bfore.

    That is definitely going to be needed, hopefully it's well done.

    A couple of short videos, then pop up balloons pointing the way, and of coarse a easy way to disable it.

    I attempted one of those videos. It is not great, but a newcomer would get the idea - I think.

    Will try to make a better one when I have some time.

    They're a bunch of idiots

    I don't know why they didn't include video tutorials in Vista and W7.

    Wasn't XP promoted as a multimedia OS?

    Probably to keep the .wim install file and the subsequent footprint it installs in check.

    Although they could present to a user logging on for the first time with a little box to check to not show it again, a brief explanation that there are videos available and a link to them. Of course, powered by Silverlight.

    Sure.

    They wouldn't necessarily have had to install them.
    They could have been on the install DVD (or a 2nd DVD).

    Obviously that would have been more problematic for laptop users.

    I don't know exactly what they will end up with.

    Possibly a little tut that pops up the first time you get to the main ui (desktop).

    They might have that pop up as once only.

    I am not sure once only is a good idea.

    It is probably better to keep it there - so people can refer to it again if needed.

    More like a type of getting started wizard screen you tend to see with many programs. The rest they will probably leave for their own support people to keep them busy answering everyone's questions. Got to have something for them to do all day!

    Not that I think of.
    According to his son, the man in the video is only familiar with Mac. From that point he did not try to bring the mouse cursor to the left down corner. Instead he kept on clicking the right corner.

    Actually, if you watch the follow-up video, which I posted here, he quite clearly states he uses XP and Windows 7 on his laptop.
