Personal 4.0 wishlist item
October 31, 2007
Everyone of course has a personal checklist of items they’d like to see change before 4.0. I’m not talking about agreed upon changes, planned activities, tasks or reported bugs. I’m talking about “Personally, I’m crossing my fingers that this changes for 4.0. It’s not vital and I doubt I’ll be able to do that work myself, so I’ll just diligently pray nightly to my deity of choice and sacrifice some poultry if necessary.”
My hope? That the default Konqueror/About/Info/Help backgrounds change. The “wave with the line that goes from our logo across the screen over to a gear” theme didn’t do it for me in 3.X and it doesn’t do it for me now. No offense to the original artist, it just doesn’t fit with the oxygen color palette, icons and windecos. Up until now, it’s actually been surprising that distros haven’t looked to rebrand these backgrounds to be more synonymous with their other graphics. Seeing all of the SUSE customizations in green seems odd for example when a very unSUSElike Konqueror window or Help window comes up. I wonder if I can squeeze the time in and it’s not to late to tweak this. Time to project the Oxygen team logo into the night sky like Commissioner Gordon does for Batman.
