Re: start the process for F9 theming?

I think that I understand a different thing:

I'm working into a Fedora wallpaper that should work for F9, and some of my ideas are to making it alive :D (If the people was happy with the infinity giving us the time... we could make the same transition of images on the desktop but using something different as a pattern).

I wanted to bring a talk (in a different thread) about dynamic versus static backgrounds and what we are aiming for in F9, but if you said about it, here is a good place to talk.

The dynamic background was a popular feature, well received in the reviews, a step forward. But on the other hand it may limit the design options: it work very well for an abstract theme like Infinity, but it won't work for something elaborated like FlyingHigh and it would be hard (but not impossible) for something like DNA.
So there are ups and downs.

The window style... Can we ad some textures to menu bar? (Gnome and KDE) like a 3D sensation? I now that we could make something on inkscape looking like a pipe and instead see the things up the bar this COULD BE SEEN as inside... (but I'm not shure that if this is possible.... just saying what I have in mind to develop for F9 AS PERSONAL WORK)

Like http://art.gnome.org/themes/metacity/155 ? Yes, it should be possible to use pixmaps engines, but they are usually slower and consume more resources (and in my personal opinion look busy).

Menu, window... everithing.... we CAN make a new window style like 3D.... why don't we go for it?

Why? Because nobody convinced us this is the best thing. The best way would be for you, I think, to create a mockup, post it here and impress everybody.

Yes... Here on LatinAmerica (Venezuela) the patents issue is really big, so.... (kind'a proposition) why don't we re-make a new style concept on the desktop for Fedora 9? It could be the start for a longer way.

The same thing: post a mockup and get some enthusiastic followers. If it is something complex it may take more than one release cycle.
