It does look pretty cool.  I tried it on my desktop and have a couple
observations, although I'm concerned these fall into "eye of the
beholder" category.  Please take with a grain (or 1000) of salt.

* The blue's a bit intense or saturated for a background, maybe a bit
too much toward the violet -- although I *do* like the idea of varying
the shade of blue, in the way that F8 was more aqua, and F9 is more
indigo.
* The multitude of gears is AWESOME.  It might be nice to make them a
bit more faded and subtle, but I wonder if that might lose detail to a
point of losing the theme.

Anyway, just my observations, I'm in awe as always. :-)
