As much as I love that wallpaper idea, I think that we should go with a nice, simple, clean look so users feel like they have a nice working ground that they can install what they want on it and work from the ground up. As I said, it looks awesome, it's just I don't know if everybody would like it.

I've been following the posts on this subject and here is what I am

What if its an outer space scene with stars (having animated twinkles
... for the boot-up background image)?  There would be asteriods and,
may be, one or two planets with 'our' rocket somewhere in the picture.
The scene would have a blueish hue to it.  Its the kind of thing that is
best done with a 3D application like 'Blender' and rendered with V-Ray
or Yafray (and retouched in GIMP).  I cannot help thinking about a
wallpaper I downloaded from CG-Arena ... just to help our imaginations
as I can't think of anything closer at the moment.  My reference is a
bit busy but I hope it paints the right mental pictures.


I also see that we have limited time to agree on this based on
design-team Digest, Vol 9, Issue 32
