Thanks - I was able to change it last night. I really appreciate the
extra eyes on this. I've spent so much time looking at it that it's
hard to see what's really there.

That would be wonderful.
We have plans to add more images, but I think "customer images" will
give a much better impression.
I'm sure there will be XO users hearing about Fedora for the very first
time. Customer action shots will have an effect by showing that while
Fedora on the XO is new, Fedora itself has a history.
Obviously we can't say for sure what goes through every person's mind,
but your 'action shots' could help someone decide on Fedora.
We're also hoping for some good exposure at Amazon and OLPC is going
strong with promotions - in fact I heard that Tom Brady (Popular NFL
Quarter Back for the New England Patriots before his injury) had filmed
a promo for Give One Get One.
Now think of it this way - last year G1G1 had 16k Laptops ordered on the
first day and the expectation is to double this year. If the SD card is
listed along side, what could that do for promoting Fedora as a whole?
