Website Testing Files

I don't know why the other pages don't work. I tried the theme using
postgres at first, but it was too much work converting the .sql file, so
I installed mysql. I did see a change on how the front page looks, after
adding the sql file as the database file for drupal. Maybe I need to
adjust something somewhere, I'll have a look.

I also like the logo against a black background. It looks like it's
shining in the dark a bit.

As for the rest, I wasn't really suggesting we put the screenshots so
far up the page, though I don't feel we need to have that much info on
the front page.
One thing that came to mind is that it would be nice to have the "Free
and Open Source Community Developed Operating Systen" Very visible at
first glance, cause not everyone will know what Ubuntu Studio is.
The detailed description seems less important, though it's nice for
filling out the page. Could even be expanded a bit. Could be separated
from the rest too.

Happy designing, Brian!
