Sorry for the small hiatus.
New wallpapers for Freya
The long-awaited update with new wallpapers for the next elementary OS release “Freya” came in some days ago, finally. The new pictures, as usual, integrate very well into elementary’s desktop environment, but I individually think, that they don’t beat the pictures shipped with Luna. There were no clear word on how the wallpaper competition (months ago) influenced the new pack. Some old pictures still remain, but that can change.
Remember, that we are also trying to acquire some wallpapers for an independent collection.
For some hours now, an ominous countdown-timer is visible on the main site of the elementary.io website. Nobody, except the team, really knows what to expect, when timer runs out, and they won’t tell. So there is some secret, which keeps room for speculations. I won’t speculate here, I will keep that part to you and in one week, we will see.
Yesterday, Daniel Foré, one of the founders and heads behind the elementary project, announced via Twitter, that he left his “normal” job for a full-time work on elementary OS. Many readers wished “Good luck (for the future)”, some were more sceptical and doubted if that idea wasn’t too naive, but it would be a “well calculated plan”, he answered.
