I want to make the user of my software program feel comfortable with the new concepts being put before them. As part of this approach I have adopted the "information button" concept for most of the concepts.
See below for a sample screenshot - the idea is that on mouseclicking an icon, a dialog pops up with helpful information. My question is, as a user would this screen be intimidating or overwhelming - a classic case of "Too Much Information"? Is there a better way of handling the presentation and availability of optional information than buttons arrayed next to the concepts?
