I suggest:
Let us give the desktop freedom.
There is one basic reason why the WWW was so successful. Anybody could 
develop a site with it's own design. Individuals, Companys, etc.
That's why Linux needs a open desktop - also from an art perspective. It 
will make Linux successful, also in a business world.
Anyway, this means we need themes (includinging icons and everything 
which make up a theme), we need theme design tools (for the artists and 
design companies, etc.)
We need a voting system for the public to vote for the default theme.
We need many themes to cover many tastes.
We need a theme database to build themes and even vote for single icons.
We don't need just single icons, we need "design systems".
I am ready to help!
Best regards,
Marky Goldstein
