I love it, too. And the map in the background has another great feature:
Local Associations/Subsections (or whatever) could replace it with their
local map/flag. And this would lead to a cooperate identity at least
inside the fsfe. And Augustinus' Motto is a great idea too.

The style of the lines might be the only thing to critizise for me at the
moment - but that doesn't seem to be a problem at the moment.

A very good point. Especially if you look at the upcoming (or
ongoing) intellectual property debate and the "contributions" coming from
the US.
