We are Linux -Wallpaper Pack- by MSlash67 We are Linux -Wallpaper Pack- by MSlash67
Abstract
I've always seen the "I'm a Mac" and "I'm a PC" ads, and while I find them somewhat amusing (Apple's commercials more than Microsoft's) I can't help but feel there needs to be something to represent the open-source underdog, Linux. Sure, it isn't as popular as Mac or Windows but is one hell of a contender.

------------
When I think of Linux, I first think how it's more of a community than just an OS which is what led me to make the text "We are Linux" as opposed to "I am Linux" (which doesn't even sound right to be honest).

Second off I was having a difficult time deciding on a font to use for the oh-so-important text. After some internal conflict I settled on the open licensed font Linux Biolinum.

After that was decided, I made 8 variants in different screen resolutions in 2 different color schemes, dark and light.

And last but not least, I am releasing it to the public under Creative Commons License.

The most graphically interesting thing I saw since Malevitch's "Black Square".
Sorry I am kidding a little bit... ;)

I'll fav this one because of a message, but honestly, it should've been GIMP.

Nice work, clean and simple~ (Though I find it ironic that it was created in Photoshop)

Haha, I thought about this when I had initially produced this. Although I am an Open Source programmer and support it heavily; it does not mean I can't find use for some proprietary software, which I happen to use Photoshop for professional graphic designs.
