Hello everybody!

I think that todays blue background with the Haiku logo makes Haiku look old,
it gives me a Windows 98 feeling. Therefor I would like to arrange a
wallpaper design contest. It would serve two main purposes; have wallpapers
designed for Haiku and promote Haiku to a broader audience.

My idea is to create the rules for the contest and set an end date. The contest
should be marketed on design targeted websites, such as deviantart.com. I
think the community should vote which wallpapers should be included in
Haiku, and which one should be the default. We could also make a vote on
haiku-os.org where the users can vote for "Users choice" etc.

We should also try to find a contest sponsor (or sponsors) so – besides the
honour of being included in Haiku – prices can be won.

What are your thoughts about this?
