    Re: Do you like Maverick default wallpaper ?

    Why do you guys struggle to make wallpapers? I made this one in five minutes. I'll play around with it some more. I mean come on that wallpaper is horrible.

    I would also like to point out that I refuse to put the ubuntu logo on it, it's not against ubuntu, it's just that I detest logos on wallpapers.

    It looks bad to me, but it's not like there will be much effort in changing it just after 10.10 is installed.

    It's a matter of taste after all..
    I'm a human, so I can make mistakes. Therefore this post (which represents my view) may be mistaken or contain errors.
    Oh, by the way, it may also feature some sarcasm. So take it easy.

    Andrea Cimitan the developer of Murrine, who is working for Canonical as a contractor, doesn't seem to think it is the default wallpaper.

    Who said this is the default wallpaper? Please stop discussing about the wallpaper, this blog post is about Ambiance and Radiance

    The best Ubuntu wallpaper was "Dawn of Ubuntu". Google it. Was included in 6.06 but alongside the default.

    It's beautiful.

    There was a much better pure green version but I can't find it now.

    Changing the wallpaper involves only 3 clicks and only a few seconds, agree! But "Out of the box" look should be something decent, afterall "first impression is the last impression".

    Yeah I't hideous, I'd change it in a heartbeat. I think Suse makes the best linux wallpapers.

    Some looks are better than others, yes. You can't please all of the people all of the time, but aiming for pleasing most of the people most of the time is a pretty good plan.

    It seems that this won't be default wallpaper.

    Purple looks bad on orange and the number of white dots is overkill...looks like lucid lynx got bad acne...
    Looks as if the majority of people agree with me that it looks bad...I certainly hope it is changed in the RC or final version.
    ...I am disappointed the designer of the wallpaper simple decided to add more white dots and add 3 ugly orange dots rather than making something new or simple changing the purple to orange or something...Even leaving it alone would be better...

    ...We assume it will be default because it is the default on the beta and all the alphas...it's on the installer, the log in and the desktop.
