I was flummoxed my first 20 minutes with Sugar a year ago (How do I
save/retrieve a file?)

Actually, I was also flummoxed in 1986 when I first used a Mac (How do
I get a directory listing? Where's the CLI?)

And in 1982 when I first used a PC (What am I supposed to type at this prompt?)

But - I was *not* when I used my very first computer, a colorful
Commodore VIC-20 which booted directly into BASIC. That's because the
machine came with perhaps the friendliest little blue beginner's
manual I have ever used (sample: 'Hit the "Return" key a couple of
times to clear it out').

Food for thought....
