Hi Ross

Sorry to hear you're unhappy. I wasn't trying to come over as a troll 
and I don't think Martin was either. The wallpaper we were looking at 
was very clearly not an original work and the Ubuntu elements included 
weren't the up to date ones so I think it's fair to say that back and 
Martin's suggestion that we don't include these materials may well give 
the assets a longer shelf life.

We're all working hard to get Ubuntu into the hands of as many people as 
possible and part of what I focus on with the designers here at 
Canonical is ensuring that use of our brand elements is consistent so 
that wherever someone comes across Ubuntu they know that what they're 
looking at is related to the core project - an incredibly powerful, free 
and open-source operating system.

We can't go back and update old content but we can make sure that what 
we create now uses the proper assets as a starting point. That doesn't 
mean that we can't play with the assets but we should all start with the 
proper up to date materials.
