I take that back. It looks like they did delete the nazi wallpaper.

I don't mean to insult the Russian people. I like the Russians that I've met & I like the Russian literature that I've read.

I just think that totalitarian political systems like fascism or communism can bring out the worst in any people.

Also, I don't think that this wallpaper has much to do with history. The 'viva la revolucion' tagline & the hammer & sickle coupled with a linux logo seem to be looking toward the future rather than the past.

But hey, this site is supposed to be about artwork, not politics.

By the way, I like backround image you uploaded.

Nice photo. I've voted it up. - Aug 11 2009
Apparently not:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Nazi+wallpaper+HD?content=109946

But I note with a certain amount of pride that the nazi wallpaper is being voted downward into oblivion just like this one is. I'm glad to see these symbols of oppressive totalitarian regimes treated with the contempt that they deserve.

As an aside, I think that censorship is the wrong approach. I think that the solution to speech that we don't like is more free speech. We can shout them down. - Aug 10 2009

Thank you for your feedback. If you like this stuff, I can see about retrieving a few more images from the book. Copyright has long since expired, so this stuff is in the public domain.

It looks like you used the photo of the Horsehead nebula as the background image in your preview. It looks pretty good with you theme.

If anyone else likes that background, I uploaded it along with a number of other astronomical photos here:

You're welcome. Honestly, this one was not too hard to make. I think that the format of the original painting was agreeable to being translated to a GDM theme. Most of the work was with background color, layout and icons.

I think that there is a good opportunity to be had with classical art and open source software. The copyright on this stuff (if it was ever claimed) has long since expired, and its open to reuse and reinterpretation in software form.

Voted up.

Note: I think the author struck a good balance with with regard to the preview.

Breasts are censored in the online preview version which is fair enough because a lot of people with a wide variety of tastes use this site.

Breasts are revealed in the full version because it is a safe assumption that if you bother to download this, you don't mind looking at naked women.

Suggestion: Change it so that the preview within the login window manager shows breasts after download. Currently, this uses the same censored preview that is shown online. People have to download it to see this preview, so I think this maintains the same sense of balance. - Jan 15 2009

I've voted this good.

On a side note, I've noted that grub boot splash images routinely get voted low. Why?

I'm guessing that people who do not use grub splash images are looking at the screenshot and noticing that they are all pixelated and grainy, and vote low based on that.

To those who don't know, there are severe restrictions for a grub boot splash image. They are limited to a very low resolution (640 x 480) and very low color depth (only 14 colors!).

Grub boot splash images are very nice for any machine that dual boots. Furthermore, there are fewer of them on this forum than almost any other content type. Do they look worse on their own merits than a nicely done background image? No question. But consider the constraints under which these grub splash images are made and give them the credit they deserve.

The layered image suggestion is a good one. I've seen a lot of objections to <insert favorite distro here> logo on a wallpaper. It would be nice to be able to swap logos in and out easily.

Unfortunately, layered images tend to have a large memory footprint and I think there is a pretty strict file size limit on what you can upload to gnome-look. The only way I can think of to do what you suggest is to host the layered image on an external website and link to it from here.

The only things I though were missing were a grub bootsplash image & a sound to play on gdm boot up (before log in).

That sounds like a very interesting project. How successful was the familiar look and feel in easing the transition for Ubuntu newcomers when they encountered things like the synaptic Package Manager that represent deep architectural and philosophical differences between Windows & Linux?

Also, did you guys attempt an XP makeover for Ubuntu to appeal to ordinary users that were happy with XP but were forced into a migration when the bought a new computer that had Vista preinstalled? - Feb 15 2008
I appreciate the work that you've done in creating this wallpaper. However, I don't understand the motivation to make Ubuntu resemble Vista. In my opinion, Ubuntu is superior to Vista in both form and function. To make Ubuntu like Vista is to cheapen it.

I'm just commenting. I haven't voted your work down. Maybe there are a lot of people out there that disagree with me and prefer the vista look. - Feb 14 2008

To all the naysayers on this thread . . .
We'll, you're free not to put it on your computer. You're free to try to come up with a search querey to return only things that you like so that you don't offend yourself when you're browsing. You're free to go to some other site. You're free to start your own stite. Personally, I find your desire for censorship a lot more disturbing that a little gutter humor.

I, for one, liked it. It made me laugh. I voted for it. I downloaded it. And I put it on my computer.
