Adminning around my group I found two interesting themes that people like (apart 
from the usual).

1: A picture of their actual desk. With their notes and scribbles and pieces of 
equipment and such. This looks really good. I encourage people to try it.

2: Four bold colour landscapes or even just solid colours for each time of the 
day (morning:blue, noon:white, evening:red, night:black). That way they know 
what time of the day it is (PhDs can not tell the time of day) and what time to 
go home. Much brighter than the ones by default. Interestingly they like to do 
this by overwriting the default background png files (in this case the FC8 
infinity ones) rather than making a new xml. They generally feel that the 
default ones are not different enough to tell apart, but that might not be a bad 

These are not necessarily the ways we wish to go with the default background but 
just to answer the enquiry.
