Answering your questions about the background theme, we should say that we love make surprises – just like you to get them 🙂
The current vibrant coloured bg/theme is not the final one we’re going to release in GA. It has been intended for celebrating the new (and great) Plasma5, the default OMLx3 desktop.
As always, we do our best possible to provide the users with an overall nice and stylish look for our loved distro.
Our artwork genius Cristina is for already a while working on new theme consistent with the concept we took since OMLx1 (2013.x) and OMLx2 (2014.x)
The OpenMandriva Lx 3.0 release theme will be all about light, energy, sun, joy, positive approach and shining glory 🙂
You may have already enjoyed the screensaver images, and most attentive people can catch among user avatars pictures the Krakow Dragon who is there in honour of our great fruitful pleasant meeting in person.
New artwork is just about to be released! Stay tuned 🙂
