*I* much prefer 1024x768 myself, as I run in 1600x1200. But according to
most polls (Slashdot, etc.), most people still run 1024x768, and at that
resolution, it takes scrolling to see a 1024x768 screenshot... And that
blows chunks, really. So 800x600 seems to be a good compromise.

I'm not sure about this. In fact, I think we _have_ to have a bit of
desktop. If you want just screenshots of the app, click on the link
that takes you to it's homepage, you'll find plenty there. We are
trying to showcase *Wine*. Wine is the glue between the app, and
Linux, and you need both to show that the glue works...
