    Don't know, haven't seen it. I never liked much the Knoppix wallpapers..you can change it if you want to.

    Oh, I know I can change it. I just think they could have picked something a little more neutral or something.

    I think the latest KNOPPIX I used (and still use) is version 3.4, do you have a link to that wallpaper, or some screenshot? I can't be that ugly!!

    Maybe I'm being a bit harsh. Let me know what you think.

    If you copy and paste the link into the address bar it works.

    I don't like it much. The earth I could manage, but what is that big lump of gray doing in the top right? A forward/rewind/play for Knoppix, perhaps?

    IMO, the nicest default desktop I came across would probably be the one from Morphix. But this is obviously subjective.
