I'm not offended at all. The color of the car was 'sublime', for what it's worth. They had those goofy names for colors at the time like 'plum crazy' 'top banana' and 'go mango'. - Dec 30 2009
Just to point out, the striping on the car is from an AAR 'Cuda, not a Hemi. The AAR Cuda was a tribute to Dan Gurney's All American Racers, which raced 'Cudas in the Trans Am series. AAR 'Cudas were equipped with 340 small blocks. - Dec 29 2009

It's largely people with no talent at drawing anything themselves that are the biggest critics. Why should you worry?

You do realize that releasing under GPL means you have to release the source, don't you? If you're not prepared to release that, then you should license it under Creative Commons licensing, instead. - May 30 2009

Just do the same thing, only no logo and in 1920x1200. Thanks! You could, if you wish, use some other colors and make variations. That's up to you, but as is, it looks good. - May 16 2009

The only things I'd like to see are a widescreen version, preferably in higher res like 1920x1200, and without the Ubuntu logo. User could easily add their own distro's logo in Gimp. - May 16 2009
No, it actually looks good. There is a large group who like interesting, yet clean backgrounds. Photos and complicated stuff tend to muck up the desktop. Kind of reminds me of Leopard's background, but then it doesn't. Be proud! - May 15 2009

The concept of the image is nice. However, this looks like it was scanned off a printed image, or something. You've got some horrible moire going on there. If this is truly your work, then you could easily clean it up and it should be a winner. - May 28 2008

Like I said, it was nothing against your work specifically. It's just that, in general, there's a lot of Vista copy-cat stuff afloat. I did not even vote for or against your work.

I know a lot of people will take something existing and modify it for there first attempts, and that's perfectly legit. I'm just hoping for more inspired work to come along. - May 10 2008
Nothing against the work you've done, but I'm growing tired of the Vista wannabe themes. Do we not have more imaginative artists out there?

I'd like to see something more unique to Linux. Something of our own, much the way that Crystal icons were/are. - May 10 2008

Kori, just ignore these haters... Nice work!

I have no idea why people have to be nasty. If they don't like it, download something else. I hate it even more when people have absolutely no artistic talent at all judging the hard work someone else has done so harshly. They need to just get a life! - Apr 16 2008

Assuming since you used the ring, you're actually referring to PCLinuxOS, am I correct? You are aware that the name of the distro is PCLinuxOS and not PCLinux? It was discussed a long time ago at that distro's forum that there was at that time another distro that called itself PCLinux, so shortening the name wasn't a possibility. I'm not sure whether that other distro still exists or not. - Apr 05 2008

Then just use something else. There are literally hundreds of them. Don't go around bashing distros. If you want an OS to bash, aim your sights at Redmond, WA! - Sep 10 2007
What has Ubuntu done to you that causes you to hate them so much? I'm curious... I think bashing Linux distros is not a good thing for Linux. We should show a united front against the Redmond enemy! - Sep 10 2007

Corel Linux started life as Caldera OpenLinux and was out in 1994. Corel only bought it and changed its name. Caldera (the company) is now known as The SCO Group beginning in 2002, and Caldera OpenLinux is now known as Xandros, as you have noted.

Also, in 2002 Caldera, Suse, TurboLinux, and Connectiva formed United Linux where each contributed something to make one distro that was compatible between the companies. It was short lived, however, and broke up in 2004. - May 20 2006
Mandrake was based on Red Hat. It started life as Red Hat + KDE, since at the time Red Hat did not come with KDE.

Suse was originally based on Slackware. - Apr 26 2006
