Comment(by godiard):

 Initial implementation:

 * Created one activity to show the content after the initial display.

 * Tried to do the minimal change possible in the sugar code.

 * sugar-session check if a file '/home/olpc/.welcome_window' exist, if
 exist, read the content, and execute the command after open the home

 * To test it, need install the activity Welcome [1], apply the attached
 patch, or copy the attached sugar-session file in /usr/bin and create the
 '/home/olpc/.welcome_window' doing:

  echo "python /home/olpc/Activities/Welcome.activity/activity.py" >

 (probably we should use gconf to put this config)

 * After that restart sugar
