Plus tiled wallpapers seem very 1990s, something we are trying to get away from. People already complain Haiku looks like an OS from the 90s without having tiled wallpapers.+1
I agree as well.. it was just an example :)
I'm becoming less and less a fan of the whole voting/design by committee thing, though for choosing from pre-selected choices it might not be too bad.+1
I think if we give pre-selected choices we could get some common ground. Kind of a 'here is what you can choose, choose one'.
Here are some that I have found on deviantart.com that I think would work well. Many of these are already licensed under the Creative Commons License. I expect that the all creators would be happy that we would consider including their wallpapers in a release. We just have to ask. We could also ask if they are willing to make different sizes of the wallpapers. http://cyric80.deviantart.com/art/Think-correctly-Haiku-158987342
I like this one, we could crop the image and set the background color to match saving space in the image :) Community submissions are of course *completely* welcome :D -- Alex
