We are not talking about the logo. The Fedora logo and the message 
subliminal in the logo is perfect.

The question here is to add something in the wallpaper to create a 
relation between the Release Name and the desktop visual identity.

I think we need to create a better wallpaper than created for Fedora 11.

The original wallpaper proposed by Samuele was great, but without the 
Lion the wallpaper is very simple.

We have great proposals by Jayme and Samuele [1], for Fedora 12 we can 
do better than Fedora 11 working in these great ideas, I guess!
