I love Emily's new version as well. One of the problems it solves for
me is the overall brightness and high energy of the revision that's on
my desktop now. The crystal shards, graphite shafts, or whatever you
prefer to call them are cool but the high contrast and density of the
image there makes it harder to concentrate on or locate my desktop
icons in that space. Emily's new iteration fixes that completely!
