how would that work ? popping it up in intervals (annoying) ? or just
showing it on login (only the person who booted will see the bubble) ?
i'd propose an artwork driven way and make it visible via the wallpaper,
unless you actively change that it will be always seen on a livecd and
its more persistent. i trust our artteam that they would be able to do
it in an elegant and unobtrusively way.
