First of all this comment is not directed so much at the auther of this wall papar but everyone that submits to this site.

It seems to me that the spirit of Linux is to create something and submit it to the community with source, then other people either fork it and start their own, like it the way it is or make improvements then submit it back.

Why doesnt anyone ever supply the source to these images?

All everyone ever does is submit the static image and then everyone bitches about changes they want or :0 "I love it, your wonderful, here's my daughter, do some more"

What a bunch of crap.

This site would explode with submissions and variations of different wallpapers if the code went along packaged with the static image.

What about themes and icon sets? Do them the same way!

I say to all submitters. Supply the original gimp, sodipodi or whatever file along with your final art.

Let Linux breath free!

"Not my background."
"Not my Tux."
and no source provided.

So why do you claim it is GPL'ed?

All used content is GPL.

Even if it is derived from GPL work (the Apple backgrounds GPL'ed?) you need to provide the source, or "preferred form of the work for making modifications to it," for the GPL to be applicable. Which you have not done.

I can't speak for the background, but the tux is mine... as in, I made it. I released it under the GPL, so he's perfectly within his right to use it.

I figured this was a cool idea.
Thanks for the feedback.

Hey, how about putting all images in one zip or tar file, instead of flooding the site? ; )

Next time I'll be sure to do this. I tried this at first, but file was too big.(.tar.gz, .tar, .tgz, .zip, and .bz2)
I am using external server for all downloads.
