Re: Yet Another Graffiti Wallpaper

Don't we already have enough sterile, 'enterprise-ready' artwork out there? Perhaps Linux can grow from a painfully narrow demographic to a much wider one with a bit more variety in the artwork? Maybe we could try to push the edge by having a different theme/style each release?

Just some food for thought. I'm not pushing for these to be default, but at the same time, I *am* pretty sick of the same-old, same-old 'sterile' graphic styles.

+1: be bold, be innovative, make it fun, make people care.
Do you remember when Ubuntu started pushing wallpapers with naked people? That was highly controversial, but it was a bold movement which generated a lot of talk and made people care about Ubuntu.

So, be bold and do not hesitate to try new things.

For our last release, we had a bubble theme, which you could say is not 'professional,' but was most definitely 'fun' and generated a lot of excitement around the release. I kind of thought the point of Fedora was to build a community operating system, not to cater to professional types. There are plenty of other distros for that.

I did not like very much the "Bubble" theme but have created some works based on it, I am neither very fond of this "Graffiti" theme (at least now is blue, which is much better than the initial olive) but if it is used in the release probably I will try to do something based on it. For the next release after FC6 we should pick another theme and have fun with it.

I agree with you, by definition Fedora is not "enterprise" so we do not have to stay stuck with the enterprise rigidity.
