I *HATE* the brown; absolutely despise it.  For machines where a lot of
strangers won't be seeing the screen, I change it.  For those where
strangers will see it, however, I keep it; because I might be wrong,
and it's distinctive.  It says "this is not one of the Fedora or RHEL
boxes you see on all the other administrators' desks."

I switch to the gartoons icon set, though, because it's a
conversation-starter and just too cool to pass up.
