Would the best place to start be to try and draw up a comprehensive
list of topics (or perhaps I should say tasks) that should be covered?
Might be interesting to ask on the forums to get users feedback on
what are the common tasks they do...

I think it's worth considering that the guides may be used by people
who might not realise the difference between Gnome and KDE, in which
case I think an integrated approach might be better as would help to
make this clear.
