This would be nice
What about the slideshow be embedded in the Main Page of www.linuxmint.com?
However it would need more spaces...
I'll promote but I wouldn't want it to open automatically after booting, and to be honest I think it would work better if it was used on the mint site so people could be introduced, maybe instead of the slideshow we have now of the different editions, etc.
Ubuntu seems to use this sort of idea with its sample documents. This might be easily implemented in the same way with a single file and the office suite's presentation program.
Yeah, as long as they don't mind closing a window when they boot up.
Or, in another scenario, this could be implemented as an icon on the desktop labeled "Feature Presentation" or something. That would make them have to click the icon to see it, rather than booting up with the presentation on-screen, but at least it's available that way.
Sounds like a good idea to me and, it could be quickly stopped if it got in the way of someone using a live cd for something other than for an installation.
