    I like it, it sort of gradually brings the orange into the purple in a way that's pleasant to my eye - BUT when I present Ubuntu to noobs they overwhelmingly prefer something blue.

    If I won the lottery I'd invest in 'blubuntu'

    I wonder if that's because Windows has been primarily blue since I can recall. So computer screens are supposed to be blue.

    I hate blue. People come from Windows prefer blue because Windows is blue. These are probably the same people who try to tweak Linux DE to look like Windows XP or 7, I really wouldn't care for their opinions.

    I actually like the 13.04/13.10 wall paper more. The angular wedges of this one are kind of harsh IMO, the wavy look is a lot smoother to the eyes. Also the colours seem to divide horizontally from the screen shot, that looks less fluid than the 13.04/13.10 design.

    Hmm, glad I can use or change the back ground to what I prefer.

    It kind of looks like previous Ubuntu wallpapers but has been folded up and flattened out again.
    Whatever the final design is it will undoubtedly grace my desktop for the next few years as I rarely bother changing wallpapers.

    What Frogs Hair said.

    Is there no-one at Canonical with flair?
