    We are not talking about wallpapers, we are talking about a complete redesign and all that comes with that. Simply a better user experience, and yes user experience plays a role when choosing OS

    Re: YUCK! the intrepid ibex default wallpaper :(

    The new wallpaper and no change at all in the rest of the default theme in Intrepid is disappointing.

    Ok, but I can't imagine that the Art team did not produce anything but a new, simple, boring wallpaper with some circles since the release of 8.04.

    Where have all the proposals of the Art team gone? Why wasn't a better wallpaper and theme selected for Intrepid?

    Why must I change that ugly theme each time I install Ubuntu?
    Ugly? I don't like any other theme BUT Human.

    There is a difference between so good that you won't switch it and just visually pleasing. I think the Hardy wallpaper was the last one. People liked it even if they had another they would change it into.

    Usually you get retorts like that,

    it takes a few seconds to change it,
    it should not matter to people,

    well you can just turn that around to the designers could you not??

    it takes a few seconds to change it,
    it should not matter so much to the developers to make the change,

    why?

    because alot of people do find the default Ubuntu theme displeasing, unimaginative, lacking sense, and downright ugly.

    Then you are one of a kind. Thank you for taking the time to come here
    NEVER under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES use the commands: sudo rm -rf or rm -rf unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing! These commands will permanently erase data on your computer!

    Guitarists! Show us what you can do!
