Personally, I am LOVING the Solar artwork.  Samuele, I would ask that
you consider doing the following:

* Remove the moons - I believe these are distracting to the eye and
possibly might confuse users.  I have seen my children react to desktop
icons like that sometimes.

* Remove the "aura" in the middle - It's very bright and interferes with
desktop icons that are placed in that area.  The solar body does not
have this problem because its bright areas are not as wide.

I agree with Mo that the GRUB screen might need some slight tweaking,
but the other banners are *BEAUTIFUL*.  I hope people will not interpret
this as negativity toward any other theme, because I think we have MANY
great ideas this time.  

Enough, in fact, that we should consider:
  (1) holding a runner-up for Fedora 11 to use then, and/or
  (2) packaging one or more of these as alternates for Fedora 10, like a
"10th release ultra-mega-party pack theme extravaganza!" ;-)
