Has the plasma defoult theme changed we plan to update the start page in 
konqueror, maybe heven do some snazy plamoids for it, as it is a introductive 
screen form new comers to kde, it should be very visual and "easy". 

But people should realise that the one we have now was not finished. Couse the 
people doing it are alrady doing a gazilion things more, so if some one in 
this list is willing to realy do it for 4.2, you can caunt with the artwork.
