Such a small change results in a dramatic increase in effectiveness! I always try to label the lines when using a line graph versus using the default legend. Nice job!

And how about getting rid of the misleading curves so we can see the data? Judging from the x-axis it looks like there are only 5 data points per line, but the curves make it look like the data density is much higher.

Curved, connected line graphs = bad.

There is no question that the labeling on the side makes a big difference in readability of these graphs...now how about taking a stab at making the data itself more readable...not just the label. Thanks for sharing...
