Not bad for a non-designer.  I find the concept of having hardware and
associated settings under "output".  Pretty neat

Its good you're considering netbooks.  The current Gnome3.2 UI can be
pain to navigate on some netbooks.  I am looking forward to your
treatment of the "Sound Effects" tab.  We (I and some friends on this
list) did some mockups for that tab since it appears redundant.  The
results of our sessions with the Gnome Designers were most discouraging.
 We ended up pushing for a total removal of the Tab ... surprised to be
seeing it in Fedora 15 (and my guess is that it is still in F16)
