Some bits of history:
Since OpenMandriva Lx 2014, at the first boot of the system we will be greeted by OMA Welcome, a program aiming to disclose the distribution, its features, and to guide us - by mean of specific choices - on configuring the system and to install several programs and utilities.
Here is OMA Welcome (om-welcome), the application created to show the distribution to the new users.
At every boot, until we disable it, we will be greeted by OMA Welcome.
The first screen will introduce the distribution, our Community and the values on which it is based.
Here, near the Next button, the user can disable OMA Welcome automatically starting at the system boot.
All screens are conveniently accessible by direct links in the top bar
