New Arch Linux Wallpaper

As a result of the poll I created the new Wallpapers. Here is the preview (I couldn't resist and added the one with the "new" logo too):

Different resolutions are available here (original logo) and here ("new" logo).

Re: New Arch Linux Wallpaper

Simply great! I'd say that it should be adopted as an official wallpaper. smile

Re: New Arch Linux Wallpaper

There's no official WM so why official wallpaper? If you don't have X, you don't need wallpaper.

It must just be me, someone else said it worked fine too. I don't know why, but this is all I get.

Re: New Arch Linux Wallpaper

Yet another pedanthic notice from me smile
in previous wallpapers and on archlinux.org there is "lightweight", not "lightweighted".

Also, after some reviewing I agree with one user in poll thread that grouping all text and logo and centering the group vertically may look better.

EDIT: why first wallpaper has darker background?
