Linux Mint ::: Major feel update

Post by Lemon3 »

Hello,

Linux mint is beautiful, and in my personal opinion Linux will start to take off because Linux are going somewhere with good updates, OS X are out of date are just catching up, and windows 8,etc,etc....


Idea:
The idea is to have each Linux Mint Major update more "themed", what I mean by that is there's a name that means something with wallpapers.

Example:
Apple OS X Snow Leopard:
They captured the feeling, they added lovely new wallpapers and the name of it too meant something.
Wallpaper: http://www.bitrebels.com/wp-content/upl ... eopard.jpg

So what they did was capture the name,the wallpaper, the theme, the overall feeling to it.

Hello,

KeyPoints:

Even Windows Vista (Yes I know vista may have been very buggy and all that, but I'm talking about its "theme" overall, it was something fresh and new, the wallpapers, the theme,the experience, Windows 7 was bland but of course just an updated version of Vista (and of course Windows 7 is great and all that)

Wh

- Icons (all the default icons have the same style,fresh feeling to them)
- Wallpapers,login screens,etc (all this stuff, make
- This overall flow to it, the feeling of it all connected together.

its about creating/updating that makes it special, as a computer. something new. something that is special.
Its like diving into something completely new that gives a feeling like no other.


The feeling when you used your first OS,etc.

Okay, let's see... Apple used cats as codenames (before Mavericks release), and Linux Mint codenames are female names... so you mean the developers should provide the wallpapers with girls for every Mint release? :)

Did you thought that the theme used by Linux Mint is called Mint-X when you wrote this? :lol:
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
