I agree with Roman. The picture is very good and nice to look at as a
piece of art.

But as a desktop background, it is too distracting: busy, high contrast,
many colours. It jumps to the foreground!

I don't see much of a difference, and the above points still apply.

What could help is to significantly reduce the contrast and colour

Perhaps by using a simpler starfield and removing the starburst behind
the Debian logo. Or perhaps by filtering the whole picture through a
colour, similar to what was done for the Lisp Machine background.

Or any of a number of other things you could try :-)

Thank you for making this beautiful piece, and working to fit it for the
use case.
