Re: Using photos rather than "art"

Personally, i think that we need a package of addtional wallpapers for fedora, not just the generic gnome ones...

the shot of clouds by andyfitz on flickr is a prime candidate for this pack IMHO, as is Bob's shot...

Very nice :D

I'm sure this will spark a major discussion on whether photography,
realism, or abstract art is better for the Fedora wallpapers. I,
personally, am for abstract art, namely because I think Linux is more
abstract than other operating systems. (Not that it makes it bad or
anything) ;)

I wouldn't be against photography or realism as wallpaper, though. I
just have a strong preference for abstract stuff.
