Yeah, I agree -- in my mind, perhaps the _most_ important (important to
me, that is :-) thing to say while you've got the user's attention, is
`This is Free Software (as in freedom), there's a lot more of it, and a
great community to back it up.  Wanna join?'

My version is a bit fanboyish sounding, but you get the idea.

A single short and concise paragraph at the start of the longer text
seems like the right place; I don't think it has to smoothly flow into
the rest.

Come to think of it, a similar statement in the emacs splash screen,
complete with clickable button to bring up a web browser (where that's
possible; I guess in windows it should always be) wouldn't be a bad

Yo mama's so fat when she gets on an elevator it HAS to go down.
