Graphics, User Interfaces Now that the second deadline for Fedora 10 themes has been reached, the remaining theme proposals have matured and gotten much, much better. At this point, it is clear that no matter what theme is chosen, Fedora 10 will look great. Still, all themes are not equal. These are some of the best, though.

It isn't just wallpaper; the theme extends also to the installation window, GRUB, and others.

Check out http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/ThemingOverview which also has nice examples.

Well, going through the link you gave, we can safely say that they are indeed themes. Maybe the OP was like me, who expect over all theme, like widgets, icon and window decoration. ;)

It still looks like a background theme only, so basically just a couple of desktop backgrounds, and matching backgrounds for maybe a GRUB and a login window too. Big amazing news... We already have dozens and hundreds of those and it is not that difficult for users to have their own personal ones either. What about theming widgets, window manager etc? That I might call worth a news entry, this, well, just some (maybe?) rather ok looking backgrounds - like what we have seen dozens of times before already.

"The Amazing Artwork of Fedora 10" ??
Maybe a rather ok blog entry title (like it is originally), but here on Osnews it sounds like bombastic hype only. Geeks who like scifi and such stuff might like these backgrounds, however. Others? Not so sure?
