    Question I Thought 12.10 was going to have new Art ?

    maybe i did not understand but i thought Canonical said it was time for a new look and promised a more modern look and theme for 12.10 a move away from the ugly purples and browns ?

    did i not understand what was said ?

    thanks

    The ones I've installed aren't the same old purple, browns. There's more red and a warm gold. They look very nice. The wallpaper choices are nice too. I believe as a default they have to stay neutral, and it's not possible to please everyone--thus there is wallpaper choices.

    Most people change the look first thing anyway, don't they? I'm more interested in new wallpaper myself, and there were some great ones submitted. But, this new default color would suit me just fine for a change.

    I noticed the slight change as was posted above. I change my desktop to the one I use usually use within mins of a install. Every users has their own desktop as well if desired. Change it to what works for you and enjoy 12.10.

    It's very possible it just won't be released until 12.10 is released, why release new art with a rc release?

    Please provide a source quotation.

    Please read the fifth paragraph in this blog:

    From a styling point of view, we think in terms of quadruples: this next release starts a cycle of four, which will culminate in 14.04 LTS. So there’s an opportunity to refresh the look.
    You may be expecting too much, too soon. And as for purples and browns all I can say is that someone likes it and that person is the someone who has the authority to choose those colours.

    Regards.

    That person shouldn't be allowed anywhere near design decisions. Sadly having a big pile of cash gives some people more authority than they should.
