I changed this screen to fit on 24 lines: moved "Browse manuals" to the
same line as "Emacs manual", and squeezed Useful tasks into two lines.

Also I renamed the buffer " About GNU Emacs" to "*About GNU Emacs*", and
" GNU Emacs" to "*GNU Emacs*", because otherwise it defeats the purpose of
all recent changes which was to make the *scratch* buffer less accessible.
Before renaming when the user selects a link on the startup screen (for
instance, to read the manual), and after reading exits from Info, then
the *scratch* buffer becomes the current buffer!  That's because the
leading space in the startup buffer name hides this buffer after exiting
from Info.  Now after renaming to "*GNU Emacs*", the user returns to the
startup screen after exiting from Info, and can continue reading more
information from the startup screen and can select another link.
