Hi All,

I've attached a link below to a pretty plain desktop I took earlier, just to see if it's the kind of thing you're after. I haven't included any Ubuntu branding as that seems to be the guidance in the canonical wiki. Would be good to get your thoughts, it fits the 'light' theme I think.

Thanks,
Graham

Hey guys,
Just my 2 cents on this topic,
Faenza icons are my least favorite of icons,, I am not sure that it's just
the squareness of them.
Some of them are quite nice and clever in design, but for the most part not.
If going square, i would have used android icons approach,, rounded if
square but extremely easy to read at first glance.
Here is an example ;

just my opinion

I have to say I prefer it with the books as it breaks up the wood effect
but still loving the background
