Reading Manuals
by Zan Lynx on Fri 3rd Dec 2004 01:28 UTC

I always sit down and read the manual before using a new toy ... err, tool. If it's something that I'm familiar with, I might only skim it for interesting bits.

I propose that all new operating system installs require the user to pass a test of randomly selected questions to prove that they really did read the manual before using.
