Description of problem:
Chapter 6 says "You can use the live image to try different desktop environments such as GNOME, KDE, Xfce, or others" but does not explain HOW to do that (or provide a contextual reference).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I've changed the text there to read "You can use live images to try different desktop environments such ...." instead of "You can use the live image to try different desktop environments such ...." so it is clear that there is more than one possible live image.
Really, this seems fairly self evident, and devoting much copy to it might come across as patronizing.

Pete, until I saw your comment, I had not realized that different desktop environments actually required different live images. I thought it was simply a matter of configuring THE (singular) live image differently (like switching between Windows 8 mode, and classic mode).
Now that I understand about multiple images, the original text makes perfect sense.
Glad I could clear it up for you, Mike :) Reporting confusing or unclear text in the docs does help, thanks for reporting!
It helps having the images broken into sections (kde/gnome, etc)that way the images are not like 8 gigs
Pete did you want to fix this or did you want me to work on the doc?
Chris, I didn't do a lot to address this, just enough to make the semantics more clear. Addressing the issue the issue more comprehensively, or generally refreshing the content, wouldn't be a bad thing if you have the time.
Instead of saying you can use... rephrase to say you can choose between different live images.
Pete, I will go throught it and refresh it. sorry for taking a while to respond to this
Right, I think we're done here - at least until someone volunteers to maintain the book.
