This is fine.
If I understand you correctly, the tagline is related to the graphic
theme (DNA - Evolved, FlyingHigh - Reach higher)

I did, to be honest, miss this idea completely! I think it could be
fun to have a caption competition open to a wider audience, maybe a
FedoraForum thread or something. It may bring in more ideas.

Say instead something like "Tentacles" or "GNOME Curves" (with a Fedora
touch) from the default selection of wallpapers and I am sold.

So, in a way, a background of a wallpaper without a definate subject?

Call me pessimistic, but I have my doubts about Echo.

I think it will take a lot of time and work to say the least. Methinks
it will be done when it's done and until then we will have to keep
Mist or something a little more fresh than Bluecurve.
