I have been consistently seeing comments putting Fedora artwork as the 
level to which other distributions should aspire to reach. Desktop SIG 
has already started discussions on what to do for Fedora 9 which 
includes a smoother startup which should up the bar even higher.


"Until relatively recently, desktop aesthetics was not something Linux 
distribution projects lost much sleep over. New functionality, hardware 
support and package updates all took precedence over the work of graphic 
designers who always played second fiddles to the programmers. Not any 
more. As Linux distributions mature, there is much more emphasis on 
creating a desktop which is not only functional, but which also pleases 
the eye of the user. The Fedora project has been on the forefront of 
these initiatives, which resulted in some of the most eye-catching 
desktop art and themes available in any distribution. How do they do it?
