Speaking of UI, I have a little suggestion (based on the mockup on Fedora wiki).
I see that below the world map there's a row that has a clock, the
zone and the weather, it's really cool but I can imagine it filling a
1024x768 screen pretty quickly. I would like to suggest that this rows
are self-aware enough to know if screen space is too short then change
from the "big" expanded view of the mockup to a more table like one
(with the cool graphics and stuff but with fonts a lot smaller).

But that's a minor thing, I think it looks great :).
