It depends. We have prepared our KDE artwork to match first background version, 
then colors changed so it does not look like it should. So now if we choose 
darker blue one, I think there's no need to rework it (but would be nice to 
again match another theme). I thought we went through this with nice artwork 
schedule for F12, first background, then other artwork. I was really happy that 
we have everything ready in time for alpha and now we're starting again from 
point zero :( For F13 we need real process - and not only for artwork but for 
everything - features, freezes... Now it's anarchy. I like freedom, it's 
better than strict rules but sometimes...

Back to rain11.png - I think there are better mockups, this one is just chaos? 
Too many lens effect like circles. I like bubble.png but that means rework of 
KDE artwork. Still I think we should go back to first background - it was nice, 
polished, nearly 100% done and lot of people asked me if I can send it or 
where to get it. And it had some Fedora feeling. Even non Fedora users said - 
hey it's Fedora, I recognize something similar to Fedora logo there ;-)
