    Talking New Ibex Background looks great!

    Thank you to the art team for delivering a beautiful wallpaper!

    I couldn't believe how passionately the community responded to past versions (displeasing to a very vocal croud) and I'm proud that the art development team was able to deliver on their promise for something better! I hope something similar to what's default now will make it final.

    I'm also a huge fan of the background on the panel bars as well. I've seen other distros do that by default with their themes and I really think it enhances the look of Ibex.

    Kudos to all who made it possible!

    Yes, this wallpaper is good!

    I remember something about Mark indicating the target audience of Intrepid Ibex was, basically, "computer litterate guys" (grossly paraphrased). I believe this wallpaper is vell suited to satisfy that group. This is a predominantly masculine wallpaper in style and color, whereas the Hardy Heron was more androgynous in both respects.

    (Personally I think the wallpaper off all releases should aim to be androgynous though...)

    Personally, I hate it. It's too reddish for my taste, and the stone texture doesn't help.

    Liked the old one better.

    Well, I think that the new one is better as a default Ubuntu wallpaper. The previous version was too vivid and had too dark background. It's great as an art or a custom wallpaper, but this one looks better as an out of the box image.

    Thanks all! Hope they won't spoil it in the final release. Yet I hope they'll make a 4:3 version.

    P.S. NoFearDJB, where did you get it? Have you seen the RC? What background on bars are you talking about? Screenshots, please!

    I liked the dark one better, but this is good enough of course.
    Good job art team!

    New background = much better!!! Impressive.

    I like the "cave" feeling about it and it is "intrepid" somehow isn't it.
