Nice work !
I personally prefer the look of the unity over the NewWave.

I also like the idea of having the logo on the default wallpaper, but is 
it possible that placing the logo in the center will have it scale 
properly so that one image can be used for both wide and normal screens? 
Also, I believe the logo would be more appealing if it was over a 
lighter shade rather then the dark shade in the lower right.

While Gnome Colors looks fresh, I think I actually like the icons in the 
"Customized Murrina theme + daolo xfwm4 wm theme" screen shot (is that 
icon theme fully fleshed out?)

Thank you
