I just received my own, played a bit with F9 and F10 Alpha live images
and right now F10 Alpha is installing to the hard drive.

Since I am not a developer, is any use in adding myself to that list?
What I can do is probably some testing. And maybe some link with the art
team, like optimised wallpapers (in F9 we introduced a 800x480 one for Eee).
Note: my interest is to run an out-of-the-box Desktop install (GNOME,
two panels layout, Nodoka, Echo etc.)
