[gnome-love] Re: [Nautilus-list] GNOME user environment brainstorming

How about some panel app or menu that displays it's self as a "What does
this do" button (shortend of course) and when the user clicks on it the
cursor turns to a question mark and then they can point at any feature
in GNOME and have a popup help explaining how to turn on/off and what it

You're right there-- hiding a feature completely is just as bad as
confusing people by pushing functionality in their faces that they'll
never use.  One of the skills of user itnerface design is to find the
correct balance, to make advanced features discoverable (relative to how
"advanced" they really are), but not so intrusive that they get in the
way if you don't want to know about them.
