Excellent work. One thing before the corrections, of which there are
not many: there is a possibility that these videos will get
Slashdotted or otherwise get a lot of attention. You'll want to think
about that in advance with respect to your hosting.

Corrections (as I say, of which there are not many):

(are you covering both Gnome and KDE applications? If not, you might
want to specify which -- whether you want to say "Gnome" and "KDE" is
open to question, but a novice user who's just installed SuSE will
find not much help in a tutorial aimed at the Gnome desktop. If you're
covering both then that's great, although you might want to perhaps
have two different "tutorial streams" or similar and say "stream 1 is
for Fedora and Ubuntu, stream 2 is for SuSE and Linspire" or

(headings don't get a full stop: that should just be "Beginner"
without the full stop at the end)

(note that you can't do a video tutorial of installation because you
haven't got an OS running to record the video, unless you record
installation in a VMWare virtual machine or similar)

(are office applications not commonly used? "through to office and
other commonly-used applications", perhaps. Microsoft calls them
"productivity applications", although whether you want to go down that
terminology line is up to you)

All good stuff, this. Marvellous work: now we just have to wait for
the tutorials and the text to go onto a site somewhere :)
