The Linux Mint Newsletter - Issue 2

Hello fellow Minties,
Allow me, please, to make a comment here.
I'm afraid that we may be abusing the purpose of this topic, since it is only intended to inform us only about the latest developments.

May I suggest that we post our comments about our desktop and rigs on
Linux Mint >What are you running at home? .
BTW I'm going to delete my Post Reply here since I have already posted my desktop link in the above topic.
Regards, npap

One more thing, could the Yoga girl be shifted to the right instead?


@Carlos

I agree that the meditating girl would be better of to the right side, And I would like to see a bit darker green version of the meditating girl wallpapers.

Bianca wallpaper was the first thing my girlfriend changed on the desktop Smile It has too hard lines, the lines should be MUCH subtle! - this is a comment for wallpaper called "Bianca Blue" which is the default one (and the worst of all that are installed). The "Bianca Blue" is not a too bad wallpaper but all others are much better, so I don't get it why is it the default one.

Anyway this is my opinion regarding artwork.

Thanks Carlos for great Mint Linux artwork!

Thank you for making a right side meditation girl wallpaper! It works great on my desktop! And the colour is great too, that green was a bit too much :) This is much nicer.

My honest opinion is that Zen is more mysterious, but I settled to the first one: the wallpaper.png . I guess it's the stylish artwork and the amazing ' Linux Mint Bianca' logo.
I think it 'rocks' man :lol:


@Carlos
IMHO the wallpaper.png is nice, but not the best wallpaper. Mine favourite is new meditating girl (olive green). Also regarding "wallpaper.png" - the transparency effect on the tip of the finger is a bit too much IMHO, and feels somehow strange and distracting.

OK fellows,
IMHO green merged with blue looks unnatural. I think the Zen girl, shifted to the right, in olive green would look even better if the Mint logo was similar to the ' Apparition' one( may be on the left bottom ).
