And it is good looking too.
I would like however the corners to be just a bit less rounded and the 
plane for the background waves in a somewhat different perspective, more 
parallel with the plane on which the screenshots sit.
And speaking of screenshots, can we use some variation in them? Now all 
are mostly blue windows, maybe on the desktop one have a few application 
windows open (like the web browser showing he default start page the 
about GNOME dialog or the system monitor info)

Maybe we can use the release F9 parties when the right people in the 
right mood are gathered together and collect some group photos which we 
could use in future promotional materials?
