OpenMandriva Welcome

OpenMandriva Welcome

Some bits of history:
Since OpenMandriva Lx 2014, at the first boot of the system we will be greeted by OMA Welcome, a program aiming to disclose the distribution, its features, and to guide us - by mean of specific choices - on configuring the system and to install several programs and utilities.

OMA WELCOME - om-welcome

Here is OMA Welcome, the application created to show our distribution to the new users.
At every boot, until we will decide to disable it, we will be greeted by OMA Welcome.

The first screen will introduce the distribution, our community and the values ​​on which it is based
All screens are conveniently accessible by direct links in the blue top bar.

With Next we follow the various screens of the program, each of them providing some different goals.
Here, near the Next button, the user can disable OMA Welcome automatically starting at the system boot.
