Yes it's really worth to become the our 2.2 main theme ;)

We need to find new path everyday to convince all the "folks" to defend
their freedom and it's a lot easier when they see a relaxing beautiful
graphic because most of them are non-technical people and don't care
This is why the work of this list is VERY IMPORTANT to achieve freedom. :)
Agree. I prefer that one too but we need more and more wallpapers.

Every os comes with a lot of wallpapers and people like the choice so
let's create more of them!

I like the third more colorful one the most.
It's wonderful and fits greatly in the theme.
Maybe we should have green 3d icons too instead of the 3d orange ones
that don't fit very well in a green-based theme.

I watched it again and I like it.
To me it doesn't need any modifications.

Just as Ubuntu has its own naming convention and animal-related images,
we should follow that idea but with trees or something like that.
Maintain a continuity if you understand what I mean.
Let's work together to make it even better.
I know an italian girl that is a good artist but she only speak italian.
I hope to convince her to join the italian gNewSense mailing list so she
could work (with my translation help) with this group.
Let's make gNewSense the best artistic distribution of all!
