> https://svn.osgeo.org/osgeo/livedvd/gisvm/branches/osgeolive_5_0/doc/images/screenshots/800x600/osgeolive_menu.png

While cosmetic thing, I'd prefer it if that particular screen-
shot be taken with the cursor visible, and an item selected from
the menu*. Also since it is our front-window display image, I'd
ask that it be taken with the desktop icons cleaned up and no
stray apps running in the task bar. (so taken from the VM not
the ISO)

[*] learn from the greek masters: instill a sense of movement
in your static display to engage the viewer's mind.

If no one else gets to it first I'll try for a cleaned up version
over lunch.


ps- when committing to the release branch, please try to merge
between svn branches instead of committing the same file/change
as new, twice. see the svn instructions on the wiki for details
