.... I really wish my damn email client wouldn't send emails when I'm not
done.  Sorry for the second email.

Anyways, who  is to say that a newbie isn't interested in kernel hacking?
Maybe thats what they want to get into.

Also.  I think mixing these "wiki personas" with the other personas is a bit
confusing - but thats just me.  The personas image was based on the (now
languishing) work of the Usability Team ( ) specifically the User
Categories (
 That User Categories is where the text for alot of the personas image
came from.

Just as an FYI.
