since we are close to a new release, this topic comes back to my mind.

AFAIK we still don't have a general resolution on this, do we?

I'd suggest we use a default installation of one of the major
distributions (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora) and make the screenshots with
their default theme (Xfce or Gnome?).

While at it, we could also update the screenshots on the website, which
are dated from 2010, Geany 0.19 :).

What do you think?

(<dreaming>We could even put a Qemu-KVM image of that installation on
the server so everybody could take the screenshots by downloading and
starting the image.</dreaming>)
