I don't usually comment on wallpapers, but this wallpaper is brilliant. I always thought I loved the Heron silhouette, but this is just so much better. It looks and feels amazing.

Dream Wallpaper

This topic concerns the new wallpaper for Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex. After the 8.04 wallpaper, the Heron silhouette, I think Ubuntu has to restore the abstract wallpapers it had as default in the last years. As the main focus of this incoming release is the change of colour palette and of the look'n'feel of Ubuntu, I think we have to aim to a wallpaper that can satisfy eyes and perceptions, first to capture the attention of new users and then to make Ubuntu more competitive, including the look and feel, with the other OS. We asked the collaboration of one great deviantART graphic artist, deadPxl, who has granted us to use his masterpieces for Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex.

Concept

There are two kinds of wallpapers: The "Aqua Dreams" and the "Eye-Candy"; the first softer, the second more defined.
