Possible layout for a "first run center"

== Background ==

The recent elimination of the registration wizard on AOO 3.4 had a small
negative side effect: new users will not be prompted to fill the information
under Tools → Options → → User data. 

This is a problem because, for example, without that data Writer will open
documents on the first page instead of the last edited point: there will be no
match between the non existing user data and the document author. 

While easy to fix (just fill the data), not all new users will be aware of the
meaning of that configuration so I think it is a good idea to guide them there
on first run. 

== The proposal ==

The main idea is to build a "First run center" that replace the start center
only on first run, providing some information and quick links to important
settings that needs to be configured by the user, among other things like links
to the extensions and templates sites, a small document that list the main
AOO's characteristics, etc. 

On the attached odg file you'll find a diagram with a possible layout for this
first run center.
