Leave your feed back for the Fedora 14 wallpaper theme concept, shown below.


Some earlier iterations:

There's a couple of reasons why this theme relates to Fedora 14. First, the codename for Fedora 14 is 'Laughlin'. This is after Robert Laughlin, the 1998 Nobel Prize winner in physics for the fractional quantum Hall effect research he did. Laughlin argues for a concept called 'emergence' which states: "The whole is more than the sum of its parts." Kyle's proposal shows many separate lines coming together that, when you step back, forms a solid shape as well, relating to Laughlin's concept of emergence. Secondly, Fedora is a kind of a single object - a Linux-based operating system - but it's also a community made up of many individuals from all over the world and aggregating many individual open source projects and work. So the concept also relates to what Fedora itself is.

I'm a bit concerned that this looks too reminiscent of a broken LCD screen. Am I crazy? --Mattdm 12:49, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

  • "Lubomir Rinteł this is actually quite beautiful even though it is just a concept. By the way, is it some kind of a rule that the theme is always blue-ish, or just a unwritten custom?"
  • "Rahul Sundaram Unwritten custom. Users always want blue. It is established pattern. "
