"Screen Shots" hardly more than Background images

Far better would have been images of the project's home pages.

Having static screen grabs of the empty desktop, which shows nothing but the tool bar and a background image, is rather pointless.

I had written all the text and was about to hit publish and thought that it would be a good idea to break it up a bit with a few images. They are really not much more than a bit of window dressing.

I have had a few negative comments over the picture of the girl in the opensuse image but positive comments on the sonic image. They are all just background images that I have used in the past couple of years.

The best artwork I have seen was produced for the fuduntu project.

Ah! Thanks, Gary, they do make sense as window dressing.

Forgive me, please, the OP came out much less polite than I intended.

Why would anyone object to the picture of a pretty woman? That's silly. None of the backgrounds communicated slanted or insulting materials. Make one a picture of a handsome man, to balance it out. :^)

Let me re-iterate what I was trying to say: Desktops which show nothing of the install except the basic tool-bar aren't providing much information.
