Excellent! That would even be an interesting texture to try for the
website main background, but I'm not sure yet how to implement it with
gradients without having to use the full image.

Nice, especially the logo effect. But the sided white/gray sheet makes
a strange balance. What would it render to with a centered white box
in the welcome screen? (still flowing on the bottom). (and without the
labels for we can integrate it to test it)

Looks great.

I suggest we leave this flash/pwp/one/free/range layout alone and that
we reuse these screens for another purpose: explain the project (so
that may need to keep the same file names but that's a small issue we
can fix later).

The five slides would be:
 - Mageia as a community driven Linux distribution
 - Mageia governance schema (board, council, teams, community; users/makers)
 - Mageia values
 - Roadmap for 2011
 - How to join

What do you think?
