  1. The so called new wallpapers is hardly what one might call original. It is so similar to the previous Ubuntu default wallpapers you wouldnt know the difference between versions. Sadly, I feel the new wallpapers are a lost opportunity to create something more of interest, something more destinct and a little less bland.
