Usualy I try to avoid things that could distract from the actual 
content too much. If it shall be accesible, table-less, hack-free 
css and even work in the POS Internet Explorer ...

I wonder if there is such a thing as a typical Linux audio user. Things 
as having fun seeing how things work might be somewhat common, but visual 
preferences can be expected to vary almost as much as musical taste.

Using the design to get some message across is a nice idea.

Patrick, all in all I think you overestimate the importance of the design, 
and I say that as a designer ;)
