Add check box to final form of firstboot so that user can choose whether or not to launch this.</ br>

* "Tell me more about Fedora Linux"
* "Tell me more about the Fedora Linux and the Fedora Project"
* "Take a quick tour of Fedora $release $codename"
* <insert more as they come to mind>
=== Main Interface ===
*mchua and franciscod threw around a few ideas to play with, each should be considered.
*both a GTK and a QT interface? (refer talk page)
==== Web Interface ====
**Easy maintenance
**Dependance on web browser
**interface limitations
==== PyGTK ====
**Faster than loading browser
**More powerful
**Matches appearane of default Desktop Spin
**Learning curve
==== PyQt ====
**Faster than loading browser
**More powerful
**Learning curve
**May seem out of place in Desktop spin (may look better, but out of place)
== Documentation ==
List blog posts, meeting minutes/logs, chats, etc.
=== 26 Nov - Ankur Blog Post "A new Fedora Project" ===
=== 26 Nov - First Meeting ===
