Well, as far as depicting the concept of LFS in a graphic goes, IMHO,
whoever did this background did an excellent job:
Hard to port that to a banner though, eh? I have some art/graphics
backround, only I usually do my work by hand and haven't done much
I might see if over the week or weekend if I can draw up a few things.
But to be honest, (no offense meant Sash), I respectfully disagree with
the point Sash made as far as the full jigsaw pieces. The banner well
illustrates the *concept* of putting together a Linux puzzle without
having to spell it out entirely. Often, good art (music, written word,
visual art) can illustrate, describe or outline the meaning of a thing
without being totally explicit. Sometimes half the skill there is gently
leading a person to a thought or feeling without forcing them to the
point. Understatement can be a powerful thing. :) It kind of goes hand
in hand with one of the original goals of the site - subtlety.
Anyway, no need to ramble on a thing. ;) That's just my take on it.
