[Mageia-artwork] Final installer discussion

That will be ok, but I think with relivent texts it would be good to 
have logos for some of the software's that are mentioned such as for 
example the Firefox logo.  That's the kind of thing Ubuntu and Mint do 
with their installer slide show images for example. Also Esteban used 
software logos in his images.

I suggested to Guala on IRC rather recently to try making a second lot 
as well for some of the images with not only the text, but also logos 
for some of the software that is being mentioned in the text such as 
Firefox and LibreOffice. If he does this soon some of us could decide 
what we think looks better, I assume, before the final images really 
must be sent to the packagers.

Guala seemed to think on IRC that it may be a good idea to put software 
logos in the cauldron bubbles.

I know there isn't much time to agree on changes to the artwork now, but 
then again if Guala is willing to try what I am suggesting, there is 
still time.

Also yes I would like Mageia 2 Beta 2 released later on today with the 
installer slide show graphics, so got to be quick with any last minute 
changes, if they are going to be part of it.
