Yes, officer, the wallpaper is stolen

Edit: Unfortunately, the images originally included in this post are gone, because of hosting problems in late 2009. My apologies.

I went through a brief Dreamlinux phase over the summer, and I still wander that way now and again. It’s an amazing, beautiful distribution, and at the time the real draw was the fact that there was an XGL version with binary Nvidia drivers installed by default.

I stole their wallpaper at some point, rebuilt it in Inkscape, and branded it with a fadeaway Ubuntu logo. I originally had the Dapper release date on it, but that proved anachronistic shortly thereafter.

I dug it out for the latest screenshot; if you want to see the entire design uncluttered. … This is ~218Kb, as a 1600×1200 PNG file.

I just like blue a lot. Blue and white together work wonderfully. Try this with one of the Mac-esque window decorations that are in the Xubuntu theme manager.
