Thanks for the link, and Bruce I agree with the 1 disc philosophy.
However, how can we make the added artwork more readily understood to
the user? My first reaction when I got to Ubuntu was "That's it? Three
wallies? Good thing it comes with Gimp". I've had other people say
similar comments and I had no clue where to send them for more except
Gnome-Looks and such.

What I was wondering after posting the question was, what about the
examples section. Could there be something in there with a link to the
flickr group? Perhaps an invite to get involved? I mean when is the last
time a Windows user was asked to get involved? lol

http://www.flickr.com/groups/ubuntu-artwork/ has more than 1900 images
from which we will find a nice set of additional wallpapers for our
users ;)

So, the answer to your question is: yes!
