less pressure on us I think.... because the creative process is not
always so consistent in terms of time/effort involved, if we make a
selection of things already available perhaps we can deliver on a more
predictable schedule? (and get some publicity/exposure to artists who
aren't already on the team but already 'get' open licensing - maybe it
will help us convince them to join our effort :) )
Honestly, I am not a big fan of this approach, is like us dropping the
ball and acknowledging we are not able to create ourselves something
The theme that unifies the selected images could be derived from the
codename. It would be great to have a whole cohesive set of images for
users to choose from too instead of just one like we've always done.
Let's see the codename, but I am skeptical we will be able to find
enough quality, Free images for an entire set with different personas.
This would still involve some effort from us too, to convert/crop
to the ratios we support and whatnot.
We could have a competitive element to determine which one of the
selections is the wallpaper by default?
It might be cool too, to work up a list of personas, each of which we
should try to aim a wallpaper at. For example, the Windows XP base set
of wallpapers has the flower and the pink wallpaper for girls...
I hope we will do something with wallpaper extras for F12.
