The openSUSE artwork team has a dream and needs your help. A new initiative seeks to collect information on how users customize and use their desktops. Then this data will be used to help design future openSUSE releases.Andres Silva explained, "It is not a matter of "I like KDE or Gnome better than others," but rather it is a way for our team to understand how much we tweak and change our desktop environments to meet our needs." There is a submission page for screenshots and details of customizations. Folks are even welcome to create mockups of their desired features. So, head on over to the "Dream openSUSE" initiative wiki page and help shape the future of openSUSE desktops.On a related note, Silva also divulged the wallpaper for openSUSE 12.2. Very much in character of most openSUSE default backgrounds, it's an attractive, tasteful, and professional choice. Marcus Moeller's ""Lightray" earned the honor by receiving the most votes in a recent opinion poll.

by Caio Ferreira on Feb. 01, 2012Centered is not the best region to place Suse logo on a wallpaper, most of the time you open a window it will be on center covering the logo.
I'd suggest to place it on top right for professional usage!
Great idea to collect user personalization, very good initiative!

by tardotronic on Feb. 06, 2012I had to leave SuSE because of that problem - its desktop just isn't configurable enough. Now I'm using PCLinuxOS with Enlightenment, and enjoying much greater success with my customisation efforts:
