The past weeks I have been thinking about overhauling the KDE screenshots
pages, and I had the following in mind: "Impressions of KDE". A more generic
way of showing KDE to our audience.

This section would consist of several items, which I will describe here:


Old versions

We'd keep some screenshots of older KDE versions, but not all. It is nice to
show the evolution of KDE from beta to 1.x to 2.0 to 2.2.2, but I don't
think screenshots from years ago mentioning kpanel, kfm, KIllustrator should
be displayed in the same context as the up-to-date product shots.

We could make this a seperate section, focussing on nostalgia and evolution
of KDE.

Latest KDE version

The latest shots, like we have now, although I'd like to make three
sections: one showing functionality in the default look, one showing
themeability and cool GUI looks and one for specific stuff like KDE print
and specific applications.

Demo software

Statically compiled Konq/E for download, so people can try out the latest
KHTML and/or test their render bugs with it.

Desktop video

I'm currently looking for software which can grab my desktop continously so
I can encode it back to a video format and have a video demonstration of

So, what do you think?
