I agree, but Linux must loose the 'boring' reputation when it comes to looks, so I hope it will not be an orange plain wallpaper like Mandriva One 2007, that really sucks
To be honest, I have tried different orange wallpapers today for about 2 hours, also used glassy wallpapers which came in blue and changed the palettes to orange with gimp and came to 1 conclusion (for myself): when you change a nice blue, green or red wallpaper to orange , then it's spoiled. The color doesn't have the 'feel' that other colors have.
The only orange wallpapers that have some sensitivity are sunsets which make the water or sky orange at night, but those ones are not bright , always a little dark.
After this conclusion I begun to worry, because I do like the default wallpaper of 3.2 (a little) so now I think it can only be worser then that when orange is used so after all I hope that this wallpaper will stay how it is
