Thank you, Kaj!
I tried to base the text
( http://sakrecoer.com/ubuntustudio/feature-tour.txt )
and layout as good as i could on your and  autumna's wiki page:

The text (and me) is begging for review and i'd love to read/see what you 
all think should be corrected both text- and design-wise. I believe it's 
the typical kindof work that gets super strong from teamwork. After all, 
speaking to all, takes many. :)
