Bug Description

"Discover Ubuntu" is a brochure that is by far our most popular material. It was originally made by an ubuntu-fr (French) team, and was translated into English. It's a great brochure and covers some great topics, but it needs a little bit of improvement.

It does not need an overhaul, and should only require minor cosmetic changes.

 * Some of the phrasing is funny and has some unnecessary words. It mostly just needs cleanup.
 * The color scheme leaves a little to be desired. Solid orange, red, yellow, and green is not easy on the eyes.
 * A better PDF export. The current one has some oddities, especially noticeable if you highlight text.

The source is available in ODT files and a scribus file. I don't know why there are all of those ODT files, it looks like all you need is the sla file.

Post your modifications as attachments here, and once it looks finalized, I'll replace the existing English one.

This is a request for translation, not a bug as such...
