Re: [desktop] Interesting piece of artwork

Wow, they sure look nice... personally i would find them too good for mere lilo!
(how long do you stare at your lilo anyway? :)
Why not use one of them as the new debian-wallpaper? we could make a package
with a collection of the rest (couldn't find one, maybe it already exists, a
kdewallpapers-package does afaik).

Another idea might be having a kernel with framebuffer display a (scaled-down)
debian-image at boot. The beer-tux-icon is cool, but having a flashy
debian-specific one would just be that extra touch and isn't all that hard to do
(we could go all the way, and have one without textoutput and some groovy
boot-animation, but i don't know if everyone could appreciate it :)

Oh well, just my 2 cents. (just lilo would be nice too though :)
