why must the Ubuntu logo be in the desktop, let alone the word "Ubuntu"?.

isn't this 'over-branding'? is the 'brand' of Ubuntu so weak it must be
pushed in the face of the user over and over again?

i'd like to see designs that back-off a little, allow the desktop to belong 
to the user's imagination for a moment instead of Canonical's.

people know they're running Ubuntu when it's on their computer. we don't
need to remind them from boot to desktop. 

i think it comes across as a bit desperate, an over-bearing need to be recognised.
