The scene is impressing (without any doubt), but the icons stay as patches on it.
If such a picture is made to be a background, maybe the icons should look like asteroids,
space-shuttles or something of the kind.
This is just an opinion

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
