This have to be the best looking wallpaper i've ever seen!!! It would be great if there was a debian-logo instead of a gentoo...

The other resolutions have much larger files that are over the 500KB limit on kde-look.org.

I didn't want to compress them too much, otherwise you'll notice the compression artifacts. PNGs produced even larger files, so I resorted to JPG with 20% compression (not really noticeable in our case). =/

The originals were in 1600x1200, but I haven't had a chance to test them out as my monitor only goes up to 1280x1024 max. Let me know how it looks!

Personally, I think the lower resolution ones look better, i.e. 1024x768.

Thanks, I tried to randomize the code streams and give them depth. Each code stream was individually crafted and tweaked. All in all over 200 layers. =O

The randomization of the code *sequence* was done by making an array of the letter images in javascript and using a random function to generate a table of the images. Then I just used each column of the table as a code stream.

Hey guys, I would make one for the other distros, but...

1) If you look closely, the letters used in the code streams are the official letters from the Gentoo logo.

2) See my reply to aaron below. It would take a *lot* of time if I had to do that over again using letters from distro logos for every requested distro... Plus, the Mandrake logo font is kinda generic and SuSE only gives me 3 letters to work with (won't be too randomized).

Tell you what, I can maybe make a Linux one for all the other distros? Maybe use Tux the penguin as the impression in the code cascade? =]
