Detailed Description

Currently, when looking at Fedora Workstation, there are limited cues to the end-user that they are indeed using Fedora Workstation. When comparing Fedora Workstation to other GNOME 3 based operating systems, the current ways we differentiate our visual identity from these OS (the default wallpaper & logo and the logos on bootup and login) are typically obscured in a workflow where window(s) cover most of the workspace. This causes the effect that when you are looking at the default desktop in Fedora Workstation, that there are no cues to the user as to what OS they are running.

We want to use interface elements in our desktop to create a distinguishable visual identity for Fedora Workstation. These elements should signal that Fedora Workstation is more than just a sum of its parts and over time develop instant recognition of Fedora Workstation.

The way(s) that we achieve this goal is still yet to be approved by the Workstation Working group, but there was consensus in the latest Workstation WG meeting that this feature be filed, but dependant on the WG approving the changes later also.
