i also dislike the current Knot3 wallpaper alot. it's both boring and
un-original, especially when seen as a brown version of the blue
wallpaper predominating on OSX. this is a comment/criticism i've heard
several times of Dapper's default wallpaper. we need to break out and be
bold. this is what people expect from Edgy, so let's give it to them.

i think that some of the wallpapers in the link you provide (though i don't
know which are yours) are very good candidates, especially:


that's classy and proud stuff. nice one.

this image is contemporary and original. it says Ubuntu is a fun and
imaginative place for spending time.


this one i also like, though it seems more suitable as a splash,
probably due to the aversion most have to staring at a bright surface:


anyway, the best wallpapers for Ubuntu i've seen so far.
