How exactly does a digital picture look "used"?  :)  I know you are
all proud of your Oxygen stuff but there's no need to impune the work
done by earlier artists. I really like a lot of the current desktops.

See, what I object to is that you do not seem to be saying anything
like, "The version specific wallpapers (ones that say 3.5 or 3.5)
obviously need to go and for reasons of technical superiority all KDE4
Wallpapers should really be SVG not jpg." Those are statements I can
get behind. Those are valid reasons for removing something that
someone like me probably has on their desktop right now. What you are
saying comes off more like "Those are old and Oxygen is teh r0x0r so
everyone change your desktops."

Additionally, I'm more than a little defensive because I haven't felt
like coding in KDE4 for months now because of just this type of
current-users-don't-matter mentality and the first thing I try and do
to get back greets me in the exact same way.

If they are supposed to be what KDE4 uses why in god's name AREN'T
they there? We're tagging Beta2 in a few days. What precisely are you
waiting for? 2 days after distros start burning their CDs?
