Description

There are still people who do not realize that DDL is not an application while clicking the download button. We should add an obvious message since people may likely rush at the download button without reading the page much.

for main page
  1. added operational to system at the 1st paragraph
  2. added the following sentence before main screen:
    Moreover, DoudouLinux will work at clean PC - no Windows®, MacOS or Linux needed!
for download page
  1. added the following sentence after the 1st sentence
    All you need to do is create bootable CDRom or USB-device (and order your PC to boot from it?).
for Get DDL page
  1. Download DoudouLinux link would be placed at the bottom of Creating a CDROM and Creating an USB key paragraphs
  2. added the following sentence by the end of 1st paragraph
    Please note DoudouLinux distributive is not installation file that you may run inside environment installed at your PC. Offered ISO/IMG files are intended for creation of device that your computer will use for boot. So it make no difference which environment - Windows®, MacOS or Linux you currently used.

I modified 3 corrersponding Russian pages. If it make sense to you I modify change English pages too.

Here are my comments:

  • I don't like the expression “operating system” since nearly nobody understands what it is. Even specialists don't agree about what is an operating system exactly.
  • “DoudouLinux will work at clean PC” may make believe you need a computer without any installed system.
  • “bootable CDRom or USB-device” is difficult to understand too for most people (what does bootable mean?).
  • For the “get DDL” page, try to use simple words that everybody understand.

  1. operating system->environment
  2. DoudouLinux will work even at clean PC
  3. bootable mean a device from which PC can load an environment
  4. Please note DoudouLinux file you get (ISO or IMG) isn't a program you may run inside environment installed at your PC. It is intended for preparing CD-Rom or USB key. Your computer will boot from this CD-Rom or USB key and let you enjoy DoudouLinux.

I think we need to read and reread the paragraphs to be modified. We should avoid any technical word as much as possible (OS, environment, boot, etc.). Our target is the standard family and we have to speak the language they speak. I'm not sure people know they're booting an environment installed onto their computer, more likely in their mind they just switch the computer on! It's then quite difficult to explain that DDL does not work like all the things on their computer…

  1. environment->programs that makes your computer run/usable/that allow you to use PC
  2. All you need to do is record the file you download to a CD-Rom or USB key and then restart your PC.
  3. Please note DoudouLinux ISO or IMG file isn't a program you may launch like any other program within your Windows® or Linux. ISO file is intended for preparing special CD-Rom and IMG file - for USB key. When you finish with it, just leave prepared CD-Rom (or USB key) inserted and restart your PC - then you are welcome to enjoy DoudouLinux.
