As you know, every other older versions of KDE 4 (the couple) opens a new official wallpaper, and how could it be otherwise, KDE 4.10, whose final release is expected next February 6, comes with yours, redesigned by Nuno Pinheiro, everything a digital artist who must, among other things, a very large proportion of all visual Oxygen. But until teachers have bad days. That’s at least thought I have to watch the official KDE wallpaper 04.10 :
Honestly, the first time I saw him a few weeks ago, I did not like. And I still like it. I also do not like, but I find it quite outdated visually . Reminds me of the typical wallpapers of years, as those who could wear the Mandriva shift in 2005-2007: a geometric design based colored gradients. Wallpapers are still well, but let’s say that the style has evolved a bit.
In any case, it is my opinion, and “everyone likes” that they say, for that. In fact, the reactions that I observed on social networks were quite good, nearly everyone seems to like the image . And that would end this entry, I would never have written – who cares what I like it or do not like? – If not because every time I saw the image of yore again have a déjà vu …
At last I remembered years ago I saw something very similar, namely Mac OS X in one of my office mates back then (it was Tiger sounds, but I can not say). You tell me what you think (click to see larger image):
Do not know about you, but I see many similarities between the two designs. Coincidence? Inspiration?? Plagiarism?? Since then, less has been accused of plagiarism in the past. And maybe if we were talking about another case of plagiarism could accept it, but in the case of Nuno Pinheiro, the truth is that not consider that option. Inspiration?? Could be. Although I bet by chance ; sure there are many similar designs out there. In any case, I am not convinced. What do you think about it?
