An addition to my Communism theme.

Call me crazy, but isn't this a KDE site? "but it's a wallpaper, it can be used in kde" you might say, but so can a picture of my ass. Not trying to start a flamewar, but I think political content should be posted somewhere else, as all it really does here is cause unnessary controversey and associate linux users with this group or that group or another group... just my 2 cents.

No offense, but most political wallpapers i run into do not show the slightest bit of artistic talent, and i can't imagine anyone actually using them for an everyday background. I think the authors only mean to stir up arguments in the Linux community. Not putting down your opinion or views, I just think there's another time and place for this content.

Honestly, women in skimpy clothing don't belong here either (even if they are hot)... seems like more and more people are getting off-task.

I didn't say anything without a K or gear should go... just show me a good artistic wallpaper that isn't there just to stir up a conversation, we need to be improving the look of KDE, not saying "I'm a nazi" or "I'm a conservative" or "I believe in God" or "I don't"... tell me what that has to do remotely with a GUI and I'll shut my mouth. They're conversation pieces and not art, themes, or add-ons.

Not art ?! You are rather gonflé to exert your opinion of what art is on the entire kde-look.org population. Much like the person above who claims the "we", the USA, "invented" nukes, I feel you are broadcasting your opinion, in many aspects malformed and incorrect, on everyone else. So please go give Korea a regime change, or Iran or Saudi Arabia for that matter, all of whom are comiting many violations against humanity with the USA ignoring them, and realize that the one thing the USA did with nukes was have the sheer stupidity to use them.

Interesting wallpapers by the way; perhaps they will inspire some people to go back and read history, or rewritten history, and inform themselves of the good and bad deeds these people have done.

Keep up the good work,

It may not be art to you, but it is to me.

Maybe some of us just get tired of looking at gears and K's all day.

isn't it funny how Linux is being associated with commies and all that jazz? I know the concepts are somewhat related, but it seems almost surreal!

Hey, maybe the marketing people at Microsoft can put this into that "get the facts" campaign they've launched...give it some political muscle

I understand you imply irony with this.
But...who on earth uses this ugly wallpaper?

really cool!
as I know you, you don't try to support North Korea here... yes to Lenin but no to Stalin and North Korea, right?
I was thinking of making a splash screen with the heads of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Luxemburg and Liebknecht. And maybe exchange Lenin with Bakunin, although his critique of Marx is pretty immature... but I just don't have th time right now. Maybe in the next weeks. What do you think? Does anyone have cool pictures?
(for those that don't know some of the above people, check:

and for Bakunin:

This exquisite work of art stirs the soul. It makes me believe in humanity again, I feel like I ride upon a cloud of sentient sunshine bliss.

You soulless neocons could never understand.

Thank you Tusixoh.

this is lame as hell. not funny at all, just lame. yea, we got nukes here in the US (we invented them, remember?). half of them are probably pointed at north korea right now. the other half at commies sitting at their desks telling the world how great communism is. It failed in the soviet union for a reason.

Yeah, we remember how you invented them. Remember how the Soviets TERRIFIED you into running the world at the end of a shotgun for 60 years? Rememebr how you destroyed many pacific Islands testing more powerful ones? Rememebr how you couldn't move them worth beans without German Rocketry? Rememebr how Canada supplied most of your materials and much of the brainpower on the Manhattan project? Rememebr hwo the Soviets gave you an "Enemy" you could hype up to promote your arms race?

The point? Soviet Russia failed because it was in too harsh a state to not play your dememnted games. The entire world is responsible for the atomic bomb, from Russia and the US, who could;t stockpile enough, to Canada, who despite a couple of small scandals, would otherwise have prefered to have NOTHING to do with them.

It's a wallpaper, pal. Don't get so defensive. If you don't like it, don't use it.

I don't understand why people like the one I am replying to insist on ripping on these wallpapers. If you don't like them, don't use them. Its as simple as that.

Also, before just slamming them, do yourself a favor and open yourself up to considering that maybe you don't understand what the creator was trying to get at. Maybe there is no message hidden behind this, but you can't know that for sure unless you ask.

This is more in reference to North Korea's claim of having their own nuke program.

It seems to me the author has hard time understanding that some issues aren't to be made jokes of... just because they aren't as close in your generation doesn't mean they're no longer serious...

Well, this is actually relevant to today. Maybe you should keep up to date instead of handing out baseless criticism.

Its very possible that the creator of this is trying to use the irony of "Got nukes?" to make a point.

Do yourself a favor and look up the meanings of irony and satire.

Actually, this is relevent to what's going on right now. Don't you ever watch the news?
