    Re: Do you like Maverick default wallpaper ?

    The orange splotches are just hideous. I kinda like the purple-and-white. It's way better than mud-brown. (Polished mahogany would have been okay, but that's not what it was.)

    For those saying "Oh, three clicks to change it" -- NOT SO. I changed the wallpaper. I finally managed to get the bootsplash changed. (It didn't "take" on the first three tries for some reason.) But the goddamn login screen is still that nerve-jangling mess and I just can't find how you change it.

    Anybody here know?

    Sure, it's stupid to spend time on something that goes by in a few seconds. But if it annoys you enough to want to get rid of it, and you try to, and you can't . . . now that feels really stupid and annoying and un-ubuntu!

    Ubuntu devs seriously need to put some more thought into their wallpapers...

    That is a huge stepdown from even the lucid wallpaper, which was one of the ugliest wallpapers I'd seen to that point.

    I don't get those blobs either... They seem simplistic and out of their place.

    I saw a rumor that the current wallpaper isn't final, we'll just have to wait for the final release to see if the rumor is true.

    Nobody likes default wallpapers so far.
    People send your wallpapers to Ubuntu, maybe they will use something in coming distributions.

    The blank Purple is much better than this. First impressions for me still count, if this came up on a fresh install as the default background, it would make me think what else have they not taken the time or energy to think about.

    I wonder how many WinXP user's have still got that green hill as their background.
