As many will have no doubt noticed, there has been an artwork contest running for Mageia 7, and then lots of voting in the community to choose the artwork! This has all finally concluded and we will start to integrate the new artwork into Mageia 7 to get it ready for release.
Before we get to the new artwork, firstly, a huge thank you to everyone that submitting artwork, and also those that took part in all of the voting, there was a great turnout and the results were really close, an indication of the excellence of the work that our community has put forward.
Firstly, the screensavers for Mageia 7 were, as always a tour around the world and showed some excellent photography talent. There seemed to be a distinct liking for rivers this time around.
Finally, the signature background for Mageia 7 was made by Fafoulous, and continues the trend of images that have an abstract piece on top of a simple dark blue background. We all hope that you share our thoughts that this will look excellent and highly professional in all of its uses in Mageia.
The other top images in the background contest will also be available in an extra package along with the backgrounds of previous releases.
Congratulations to all the winners and a huge hand to everyone that has taken part!
