Compare "Feisty contains a 'Debian Etch' background picture"
<>, which totally confused me when I 
discovered it.

I'm all in favor of paying tribute to Debian, but I think a screensaver 
would be (and a background picture is) a weird and unhelpful place to 
do it. Ubuntu's Web site, and to a lesser extent its help pages, can 
and do perform this task much more thoroughly.
