[ubuntu-art] A note on wallpaper dimensions

Just recently I got a totally awesome 24" monitor. (Yay! It's a Samsung T240, going up from a Dell 17". I can't get over how big it is).

To my dismay, Ubuntu's default wallpaper was stretched way beyond its means at the monitor's native resolution (1920x1200). GNOME's backgrounds all look fine; they seem to standardize on fitting precisely that. It looks like most other operating systems shoot for the same target, including Windows.

Perhaps Ubuntu should aim for the same as well, since 1080p is getting quite common in computer displays and will probably remain standard for a while. It is a shame to think that users with beautiful displays are welcomed to a new Ubuntu release by fuzzy, stretched graphics.
