When you run Windows for the first time, annoying tutorials badger

and/or adapting to changes made in the new version of Windows.


I disagree. He makes a very valid point. New installs of Windows always
come up with a tutorial and "helper" app. I have never seen anything like
that on Linux. It's as if the developers are too busy with programming the
next iteration of their favorite app to be bothered with documentation, and
NO ONE has yet come up with a grand-unified "help" document (trust me "man
$appname" doesn't always work...)

Really? Seriously?

What "New installs of Windows" of Windows are you referring to? None
that I have seen do this. Version numbers of Windows? Dates of install?
I can't think of any.

What ""helper" app"s are you referring to here? Applications names?
Version numbers of those applications? Again none that I have seen do
this. Other than 'Mr Clippy' from Microsoft Office that is. And he went
away some time ago.

Still FUD without this missing information that you refer to here.
