druck: True, but I still actualy doubt that a rotating set of images is going to bring people to the platform... Any form of tour to get people's attention (specially for windows users) will need to be a moving tour and/or something they can look at what they want to, not have to sit through it for ages only to see missing bits and boringly blank desktop images that are badly scaled.

What's the point of showing people the iconbar menus for the hard discs and apps directory? That's useless information as far as introducing them to the platform goes, if someone wants to see an introductory tour of RISC OS, they're going to want to see it actually doing something.
