You are most welcome

http://shots.osdir.com/slideshows/how_to_submit.php <<---- here the 
first line on this site is:

"At OSDir, you may also submit 
<http://shots.osdir.com/slideshows/how_to_submit_desktop.php> your Linux 
desktop screenshot!"


Secondly, I believe that this concept of posting screenshots is pretty 
unprofessional and childish. Its like saying "Yay! my desktop is 
prettier than yours". At FreeBSD we concentrate more on quaality than 
looks. Secondly, FreeBSD does not have any Native GUI unlike few 
distributions like Mandrake who use a costomized GUI. Thus IMHO a 
FreeBSD screenshot would just be a black screen with some scribbles on 
it :-).
