Re: Urgent - Screenshots needed

Hi Jos,

I agree that we need more and better screenshots. Having a nice page on would be good too.

I put the screenshots I found on the wiki here:

I'm thinking this would be a great project for the people applying for the Outreach project that need to do a project as part of their application. I'm going to go try to talk one of them into it now!

In general, having a page with some nice screenshots (compare for example what
KDE has here: ) would be very
helpful. I am trying to create a 'slideshow' with cool GNOME screenshots but
there are a few things making it harder:
- no good 'official' screenshots on (that I know off) and most
screenshots I can find are not with the default GNOME look and feel
- GNOME3 screenshots are a bit outdated.

I have installed a clean GNOME install on openSUSE but that's also not
vanilla, with the modified panel setup and all. It's fine for openSUSE promo
purpose, of course - but not for general GNOME. I will share what I have made
once it is done - but note that it will be openSUSE, not vanilla.
