OK, I am beginning to be slightly annoyed by this Drupal security. Sticking out tongue

The default permissions for new pages apparently wasn't set to "view" and hence the access denied. Should be fixed now. Sorry for the glitch!

I like it, though I'd change "guy/girl" for "person" since I think "person" flows better.

"learn how to use it to do

"learn how to use it to do certain tasks" feels like there also are tasks for which free software isn't suitable. Change it to "learn how to use it".

"in the end, we encourage...": I think "in the end" means "this is because...". Replace it by "finally". Note: I'm not entirely sure of that one.

"guy/girl" -> "person": I agree. On the other hand, you could replace it by something like "the elder lady next door" to make clear nuxified really is for everyone.

Good suggestions

Good suggestions overall.

I've made some modifications.

It doesn't actually mean "this is because". As people get help in finding, using and solving problems with their software they are then encouraged to share their overall experiences. Hence "in the end". It's more of a saying than literally meaning "it's the end" or something. Smiling

Actually what I first wrote was "the guy next node to us" and a_thing later changed to "guy/girl next to us". I used "node" as a cool way of associating people not per physical neighbouring "doors", but people on the next "node" connected to the internet. If that makes sense I could change it to "the elder lady next node". Since it's a common thing to say the association between "node" and "door" will be immediately obvious and I think it'll be understood.

But anyway, I'm starting to overanalyze a simple change. Sticking out tongue
