New Default Ubuntu Wallpaper
After installing all of the latest updates to Ubuntu Hardy Heron, I noticed they made a major change to the theme: there is a new default wallpaper on the GNOME desktop. It is still based on the brown Ubuntu color scheme, but at least it is more cheery. I wonder if this thread had anything to do with the sudden change…
The above is a screenshot of the new wallpaper. I quite like it, especially since it sports a painting of a heron; the animal that the version is being named after! I think it shows a bit of originality on the part of the Ubuntu Artwork team, as it is not just a brown gradient anymore.
If you like the wallpaper too, you can download a copy from GNOME-Look.
