    one thing cool in kubuntu I noticed tho is being able to install themes and stuff from kde-look directly from the apearance customization window
    It is planed to create an extra wallpaper package for 9.10. You can see the images submitted and read more on the wiki:

    I saw the things on the Design Usability Clinics in the UDS Schedule, but they were all blank.

    Or are you agreeing with me that so far all they have to show for it is a bunch of post-its decorating a wall?

    And you've been full of blind hostility and cynicism against Canonical / Ubuntu, to the point of having contributed nothing else to this forum so far, so you don't deserve any better. I don't find threads full of hatred and baseless attacks worthy of sharing factual information in, sorry. They're always a waste of time.

    Assuming that by "things" you mean the blueprints, they are meant as placeholders for the schedule. The sessions are more like workshops, where the Canonical Design / UX team provide design and usability assistance to developers, mostly upstream.

    No, I was just trying to trigger this exact knee-jerk response. Bingo!

    What hostility? I created this thread immediately after the forum became available because I wanted it to be the one-stop-shop for all the new visual updates to Karmic. I plan(ed) to constantly update my original post with new information. Nothing new has happened yet (other than the announcement of it being delayed), so I haven't updated it. If something were shown/talked about at the clinic, I'd definitely update the post accordingly.

    Yes some of the others I saw had information, sketchs etc filled in them. I assumed that the blueprints would have something once a session was over.

    I was being sincere when I didn't know what they did.
    I want to be proven wrong.
    Instead, you apparently couldn't prove me wrong and then go with the whole "dance puppets dance" response?

    If you want you can start a new thread to share what facts you do know. It would be nice to see them.

    A search for your posts would provide a complete and satisfactory answer to that question.

    Given your original post, I don't find that sentence convincing.

    1) I see no indication of such a "plan" anywhere in this thread.

    2) There was no "promise" (as per your favorite term) of any specific redesign goal for Karmic, so nothing has been "delayed", strictly speaking.

    3) The "clinic" sessions have nothing to do with the "new look"; there are other sessions dedicated to that.

    It generally takes some time; right after the discussion there are usually just Gobby notes, and the blueprints are drafted a week or so after the UDS. But the "clinic" ones may remain empty, since the sessions (I attended only one of them) are basically hands-on workshops, and aren't intended to produce any specific tangible outcome.

    I have no intention of "proving you wrong".
