Apologies. I wasn't aware of the thread hacking act.
My rationale behind changing the background is to enable the user to
customize the Media Center to his/her own will. If they see something which
is customized as their own, they would automatically spend more time on it,
thus using and depending upon it's features more.
A better alternative for achieving the same goal is most welcome!
