“Today, Qarbon.com, the originator of ‘Viewlets,’ and SuSE Inc.,
a leading international Linux company, launched Qarbon.com’s
‘The Linux Viewlet Project’ (www.teach2earn.com/linux/).
The project is designed to provide millions of Linux developers
and users with a database of free Viewlets addressing the widest
possible range of Linux questions. SuSE (www.suse.com) is the
first Linux distribution to support Viewlets.”
“Viewlets are a Web innovation that changes help files and FAQs
into vivid and dramatic ‘How To’ demonstrations that ‘show’ rather
than ‘tell’ a user how to perform a specific computing task.
Demonstrative Viewlet windows will answer thousands of end-user
questions that are difficult and costly for commercial distributors
“Qarbon.com CEO and founder of The Linux Viewlet Project, John
Marshall, said, ‘Many people are new to Linux, as I was a year ago.
The bulk of Linux documentation on-line is of excellent quality.
Unfortunately, it rarely covers the new graphical tools that SuSE
and other distributions ship. Viewlets are the perfect way to
explain these graphical applications — why not use a visual tool
to describe a visual tool? Viewlets can finally *show* the curious
that Linux is not only powerful and stable, but also easy to
configure and maintain — with visual tutorials provided right
through their browser window. We are creating the Linux Viewlet
Project as a way to ensure that the entire Linux community has
access to this kind of visual tutorial.’ “
