I think before significant marketing we should clarify the vision and
the target, go beyond the generic "professional designers". I bet even
us, inside the Design Team, have various expectations from a "perfect" spin.
To throw something in:
* target 1: showcase of design team work (perhaps customise the
looks of the spin, add more wallpapers, include echo icons?)
* target 2: typesetting -- fonts, inkscape, TeX, color profiles
are IMHO a must
* target 3: general art/design work -- gimp, inkscape, color
profiles, brushes, perhaps our echo-artist helper scripts, ...
* target 4: video editing -- something for screencasting,
something to grab raw video from video camera, pitivi or kino or
something like that for cutting, perhaps an app for sound
editing/recording, include dirac/schrodinger codec (I think
theora, vorbis, flac, etc. are already in), perhaps some app for
subtitling (I'm maintaining subtitleeditor myself, but there are
* target 5: desktop publishing -- OpenOffice.org
And of course customised bookmarks.
