Intrepid does have new artwork, it has the Darkroom theme and a new default wallpaper. Ubuntu uses an earthy sort of look, they want the artwork completely different from any other distribution.Intrepid does introduce a new System Cleaner and an option to create a usb startup disk. Ubuntu builds the kernel and more or less puts all of the pieces together to make a working system.
We use the Ubuntu repositories for the majority of our packages, gnome, kernel, etc, so it is important to us to know how things are working and how we might be affected. It is to our benefit to test Intrepid and report the bugs we find. I myself feel obligated to test Intrepid. I have reported a bug with "eject" and a bug with the new "Quick Search" in Synaptic. The Synaptic bug was resolved today. I joined the fight for a better default wallpaper for Intrepid, they changed it! The new wallpaper looks much better than the hideous circles crap they had. (No one should have to look at crap like that and my Dad uses Ubuntu.)
I try and picture Intrepid with all of the Mint goodness. Intrepid controls our hardware base so it is very important to know it's strengths and weaknesses.
Just out of curiosity, what was the old Intrepid wallpaper? Was it the circles going out in a spiral like an Ibex horn?
