 i think "screenshot gallery" is a bit exaggerated. as i only want to
 provide one screenshot to give the user an impression, of what we are
 actually talking about.
 a picture says more than words and when talking about desktop
 environments it is essential to show how it looks like.
 why do we provide screenshots of sysinstall in the install chapter? 
 to support the text, so why do not add 1 screenshot per desktop
 environment? i will provide another pair of screenshots tomorrow.
