    i would like it a lot if the orange dots were not in it. I like orange but it doesn't look right in the picture.

    Orange is way too powerful.

    That has got to be a joke.

    Personally, I'm not liking the purple look in Lucid or Maverick. It's ok, but it doesn't hold a candle to the dark coffee 9.10 look



    I have the above available as a theme pack if anyone's interested btw.

    I only have to look at it for as long as it takes to change it.

    It looks like someone fell asleep on their mouse while using the orange paint brush in Photoshop.

    The orange splotch is ugly ugly ugly. Come on Ubuntu art team! It's not that hard to make a wallpaper! They should do a contest for the default wallpaper and have the community vote for it.

    I might make a mock-up in the next few weeks to prove a point. (I have NO experience with GIMP/Photoshop by the way!)

    It's absolutely horrible. It would be OK if they'd just get rid of the orange!!

    Default settings matter. They're what any machine in a shop will show to a potential customer. If we want Linux to be available as a pre-installed option, we have to show the OEMs it can look nice.

    Not a big fan of the orange splotches. It looks as if the designer/artist didn't give too much thought to improving an already acceptable default image and just said "the heck with it..."
