Part of my idea come from part of that image. YES
But the desktop was created by USING free source and this is the last time I will say it.

The Hattory Hanzo katana is a katana u know a katana.

Katana is for most similar:

I link for u some photo so u can see what I mean:




Take a look to the Hilt of every singol katana, it looks like the same cos it's basically the same for the most katanas u see.


the Blade wasn't the same cos the blade was totally recreated.
Take a look to the source file and please post something similar.

Taking about particulars: the grain under the ribbon on the grip is similar for all katana in the world and not a trademark.

The Hilt AGAIN is not the hattory hanzo hilt cos as u can see is for most similar to other thousand katana's hilt.

Ok, if u don't wont to use InvinXble don't use it, but don't try to find some excuses to do it. Just do it and stop.

Samuele, I'm a big fan of Quentin Tarantino, and collected some desktop
backgrounds when Kill Bill Vol. 1 was going to be released.  One of the
backgrounds features a katana sword which looks to me to be identical to
the one in your source .XCF file:


When we talk about having an entirely free desktop theme, it means that
*all* the elements must be created from free sources.  Is this sword
graphic -- the one used in the Kill Bill poster and apparently your
source -- available for free use, modification, and distribution?  If it
is, there's absolutely no problem with the InvinXble theme.  If it's not
then we can't use this theme for Fedora 10.
