Fedora 18 Alpha Wallpaper

It's rather old news, but today it has been finally set as default—yes the wallpaper for Fedora 18 Spherical Cow release. It took so much time because I didn't manage to update the package that sets the defaults in time before Alpha freeze.

You probably have a general idea of what the wallpaper looks like from my post about pre-alpha version of it, but since then it has been polished a bit—mizmo did a great job on that—and now it looks like this ;-)

Enjoy.

Update Sep 08: I'm not the author of the wallpaper, just a packager, so do not thank me ;-) However, I'm relaying your feedback to the design-team, so I really appreciate all the comments you've posted so far. I'll keep both my readers as well as the design team informed about news on both sides, so comment more and stay tuned for updates ;-)

I think it's the best official wallpaper I ever seen in a Fedora release. Much better and professional than all the old childish one.

Thanks to all the design team :)

If you look at the bottom right, there is a vertical « line », just before the last star... :(

Awesome, love it. Definitely the best default fedora wallpaper since Solar which was released with F10.
Also as MoZ mentioned there is darker vertical overlay 117px wide at the right side of the wide wallpaper (i think, that, You didn't applied noise filter on that part).

It reminds a bit the Fedora 12 background... It's not bad, but I still prefer photos.
