    As if ANY dev-team could EVER come up with a single design that would please everyone.

    We are maybe talking like 80% instead of 10%.

    If the default wallpaper plays a major role in someone's choice of OS, I seriously doubt if they are capable of installing/configuring any OS.

    Maybe Intrepid's wallpaper should be "bliss".

    And, otherwise, Ubuntu is shown everywhere with that theme.

    ~plenty~ of grandmothers go out and buy brand new computers and leave everything about the computer in the default setup. generally, this results in a crap ton of (windows) malware and viruses that grandson has to come and fix.... but grandma still picks the entire computer she buys based off of what the OS looks like at the in-store display.

    or am i the only one that has noticed that Dell's default mini 9 UI has a different colored taskbar and background? lord knows, dell knows more about marketing than most of us...
