Thanks Charlie for the valuable information! If you want to
test with
128 (or probably 192, because that's our minimum
recommended for
desktop), it would be great.

In that case - great! This means we can use it now with
perhaps a hardly noticeable speed decrease (and the user
can always change the themes if he really cares), and since
the theme author wants to move to Murrine that will improve
in future releases as well. (Of course, it needs to run
usable enough on 192MB).

One more update: My suggestion for countdown banners for
Jaunty can be
seen at http://emonk.fi/open/xubuntu/jaunty-countdown/.
Those pictures
are created by a very intelligent script, so modifications
can be done

Ha, very nice, it's just a bit unclear that this is about
Xubuntu (i.e. the name is minuscule, my resolution is
1280x1024 so imagine what it looks like in 1024x800!).
My resolution is 1024x800.... looks just fine
Also you should keep in mind that the countdown banner goes
on the Xubuntu website....If people DONT know its for
Xubuntu ...  =]
