I've been trying to get someone to tackle this project. It was on my
list of projects I posted earlier:
Most of the support requests we get (even for the XO-1) are for basic
"how do I use this thing" type questions. Preparing a nice
walk-through activity would be really useful. (This is how my Palm
device taught me how to use it, for example.)
Starting with an XO-1 activity would be a good step towards making
such an activity for the XO-2 eventually.
