I forgot to note I took a screenshot of the desktop and blinged it. Nicu
noted the screenshot in the F12 www.fpo front page banner design is too
plain, so I plan on replacing that one with the base (unblinged)
screenshot from the blinged up screenshot I did for the release notes:


Note that in comparison to other distributions screenshots *ahem*, this
screenshot shows non-proprietary / openly-licensed entertainment being
enjoyed. :) It does not show proprietary / closed source / non-open
content such as Twitter or Britney Spears or whatever.

- free & open source identi.ca is shown in empathy
- Jabber is used as the protocol in the sample cat
- GNote (no mono) is shown as the note-taking app
- Wikipedia is being browsed
- Rhythmbox is playing Dan Masquelier's album 'Wake Up' which is a
CC-licensed album. All the other artists shown in the shot have
CC-licensed albums as well.
- and of course the wallpaper and the background behind the wallpaper
and the actual composition were produced using the free tools in Fedora
itself (Gimp and Inkscape) - should go without saying but it's still
