The new default wallpaper for Ubuntu Linux v. 7.10 has been picked. It’s an abstract rendering of light stripes in a brownish hue. Much like previous previous Ubuntu wallpapers, this says “Ubuntu is brown”. It’s nice to see wallpapers getting branding recognition among mainstream operating systems. Maybe it will prevent us ever getting the awful rolling fields from the Windows XP period. In other news, the new Mac OSX Leopard wallpaper is a starfield, or a nightsky with northern lights.
