A real problem for new users is that they don't know that the frame exist to operate on. I think it is needed that we introduce that concept. Might be an animation on first sugar startup or something else. Let's get this discussion again going.

The Windows 'introduction' that it plays when a new user logs in for the first time.

As the user is setting up his name and colours you could insert a couple of instructional pages, but you won't be able to explain the whole concept.

Do the machines have the 'help' activity installed, which contains the FLOSS Manuals Sugar Manual.

A long time ago, I saw a mockup made by Eben that proposed, when booting Sugar for the 1st time, 4 diagonal outward pointing arrows would occupy the 4 corners of the home view. As soon as the frame was activated, they would be covered and gone by the time the frame hides again. I think it's pretty elegant and effective.

Now we have the Welcome activity to solve this issue. The Help activity have content about the frame too.

If we have any other change we want to do, please fill a ticket.
