So I've been using the last one (I'll call it 'C') for the past week.
After using it for this period of time I do have some suggestions:

- It seems that the blue in the image doesn't quite work with the blue
in our default icon theme, Mist. I've attached the folder icon from hat
theme so you can see what shades and hues of blue it needs to work with.
I think the wallpaper is a bit too far towards the purple end of the

- I do get a bit of a dizzy feeling looking at it. I wonder though, if
adding a slight vignette (like in [1] but dark rather than white) to a
very dark & desaturated blue to the left side would help? 

Does anyone else have any feedback for Federico? Has anyone else been
using his iterations or developing their own? Time is definitely getting
short as we need to start working on the banners for beta. :)

Federico, can you make our meeting tomorrow? It'll be at 19:00 UTC (3 PM
Eastern US time) in #fedora-design on irc.freenode.net. Let me know if
you can make it and need help connecting.
