There are a few differences between the slideshow and the Ubuntu default
system theme [Humanity].

The icons used in the slideshow are all from either Human or Breathe
icon theme.

The icons that need to be updated:
- Arrows in all slides = use human theme
- Accessibility , Help , Openoffice icons = human theme
- Ubuntu logo [Uses Human logo , not sure if this needs to be changed to
look similar to the Humanity theme]
- F-spot , Evolution icon = from breathe [especially breathe evolution
icon with a visible name 'breathe contact']
- Rhythmbox , the hicolor icon doesnt look very pretty so maybe we can
leave that one alone , to use the breathe icon ;)

You also might want to check with Kenneth Wimer , regarding this , he
had a few concerns.

Also, there were some concerns *Matthew Paul Thomas* had regarding new
users getting frightened with the gksudo system modal prompts. 
IMO , this would be a nice place to introduce the users to this
authentication method.
So, if we are altering the slideshow , *maybe* he might want to add a
slide regarding these prompts ?
