I also like the blue and the current logo. IMHO using blue doesn't make it
easy to confuse with kde.
I like the original wallpaper better than the steel ones, and it is closer
to what xfce comes by default too.

It'd be better if art team members and maybe even upstream xfce people would
put their heads together
and decided on what could best reperesent xfce/ubuntu from an art POV. Maybe
we could do a poll on launchpad
if there are camps suggesting different directions

Again, as with documentation and translation interested persons should take
the matter in their hands, and start coordinating either on this list or on
ubuntu-doc, rosetta, wherever they feel comfortable.
