Ok -- Thanks to everyone for your input.

Going to sort through suggestions and get input from Jerry & Misko.  Will post back here in a few days with general game plan and/or requesting more input on some of the ideas.

Going to leave this thread open so anyone can add to it as new ideas pop up over time.

  • Linux Lite: 1.0.6
I've been using Linux for many years, and any time I convert someone to it (mostly family members) I have to go through the "Windows to Linux App List" and describe what apps are available with equivalent functionality.  There are a lot of sites on the web with this info, but a specific section for LinuxLite apps might be useful.

I.e.:
- Graphics (GIMP, ShotWell, etc.)
- CD/DVD (Brasero)
- Office (LibreOffice)
- Internet (Firefox, Chrome)
- Systems Settings (Settings Manager)

Each section would enumerate several apps, what they do, and where to find them in the menu.  Potentially also list which apps are installed by default and which ones can be added by the user.

I got lots of questions can spend days weeks months before finding how to or why does x do that.

I.E adding a program to startup automatic launch something program launches sometimes it don't.

May I could list and make screenshots. 

Don't see why some features are hidden
I.E looking at file folder why there no slider or right click or under view to change thumbnail size.

Easy when you know how looking here and elsewhere have seen different flavour has a slider.

Does seem most questions are not the same as it's down to hardware.

Like to help If I can
Note to self list to get fixed 1 by 1
Read how to make LL secure.
See what else Linux Lite can do.
I think X kill is cool :)
