Please share your feedback, we're eager to hear it.

I don't want to let background information spoil your creativity so
share away, but at some point see our 8.10 planning meeting at
specifically starting at 21:47. There we discuss some of the reasoning
behind how we got to where we are currently.

I'm pretty certain with 9.04 we'll migrate to a single start page for
all future versions. So instead of start.ubuntu.com/[version]/ it will
just be http://start.ubuntu.com for akk future versions. This is not
my decision but I really don't have a good reason to do it one way or
the other.

Other than the URL the only other planned change is to get better at
translating it.

I believe Jaunty is supposed to have FF 3.1 installed. If that is true
then I would not be opposed to exploiting some of the more interesting
features there. (SVG and typography come to mind)
