Re: Debian and the desktop

What are you talking about Debian Style?

Color scheme, artwork (default wallpaper, login screen, even CD covers). All those little things that would make a user say "Yep, that's Debian".

A user should get the same visual feeling whether he chose GNOME or KDE for his desktop, whether he decided for KDM or GDM etc. This might sound silly for experienced users, but, take my word for it, this is something of a major importance to the newbies.

Every major distribution has that little something (be it only a default wallpaper) that makes it what it is (navy blue Mandriva, brownish Ubuntu), so if desktop is the goal for Debian, it should also have that.
