It is a nice picture (make a decent wall hanging actually), but it is a
bit too loud. The current image was selected for a professional but
subdued look. A sort of just off the picture/out of focus presence, a
man behind the curtain so to speak. Ok, that's taking it too far. :-)

But really, one of the best things about the current desktop image is it
doesn't visually 'get in the way' as it were. I can go from screen to
screen move windows freely and the background never pops out at me or
distracts my eyes. I was delighted when I read about how many people at
the last debconf were using the default background on someone's blog
(sorry, I don't remember who.) So I would hope that says many people are
fairly comfortable with it.

Curious though, why do you think the current one is less modern?
