So far, the only problem IMHO is the default background, that reminds me a very good chocolate. I love it, but I must stop eating because I am a little fat. And it will be hard to change the background, because I love chocolate...

I actually dislike it... VERY much!
Yes, it does have a "chocolate" feel, but it was also the first thing i changed in my install, right before the orange theme and icons...

On the other hand, i wish more wallpapers were included, with different styles and colors. I really hope they add a couple before final release.

I do hope they will come to a point where they include with a fair bit of consistency a variety of svg and png wallpapers that contain transparencies which will allow for theme agnostic coloring.

Plus isn't still possible to install those desktop-calendar packages that were availible way back in the beginning when ubuntu just came out (you might remeber there were some semi-nude background images at one point)
