One of the things i have noticed with LMCE. If i mention the distro to someone i do not know, but the topic of linux comes up. They will ask me right away "you must be a big linux buff?". That tells me two things. People who are interested in linux find this distro advanced. They are aware of it and A. did not have the time or inclination to use it. B. found the whole concept too complex. C. lazy. Lets face it, if you know linux and dont use this distro, why! It is fun, super useful, and can be a great hobby and learning experience. My reasoning is the documentation is lacking. I remember when I started using LMCE, there were like 15 articles on each problem that arose for me. There are WAY fewer issues these days but the documentation is just not there like it used to be. Perfect example, vdpau. If I am setting up an nvidia card where do i put my vdpau settings. Was easy to find that vdpau was an option for LMCE but finding where to set it for a newbie would take a while. Then if you read about nvidia cards the new drivers are made to work best with opengl for hardware acceleration. So opengl and vdpau for deinterlace seem to work best for me(I will document this, just figured it out). My point is, us as users need to start documenting everything we learn about LMCE(as you would to a beginner of linux). I think this will help the community grow tremendously. Then guru's like tschack can do what they love, and we all benefit. Tschack I will throw in a hundred bucks. I will promote this thread around different forums for ya too. See a lot of LMCE users on forums like smarthome.com and such.
