"i think it comes across as a bit desperate, an over-bearing need to be
recognised." I disagree. Personally I put the Ubuntu symbol all over my
desktop. I use it as if to say, "I use Ubuntu and I am proud!" As for the
color scheme of the background; I dont think the blue works. Maybe try a
deeper sunrise, or sunset. Also I think the stars are a bit much, but other
than that I like your layout. It might make a cool load screen if the people
revolved and you used that bar with Ubuntu in it as a load bar.
