    Exactly. Themes and wallpapers are subjective.

    First thing I do is set my wallpaper to use the NASA pic of the day. At least when I go to my desktop I can daydream about a Starman wanting to meet us but being afraid he'd blow our minds.

    Fortunately, there's both the Flathub and Cisco h264 codecs so this issue is a bit less of an issue now.
    Maybe it was bad timing or something, but I only ever had success with the Flathub/Cisco stuff with Silverblue based on 31 and plain Fedora 32. Any other combination with SB seemed to result in error codes from video streaming sites.

    99.9% of the time on everything, wallpapers are horrible. Its rare to see anything with one worth using.

    I don't know.

    To be clear, a lot of other distros are pretty good about upstreaming their fixes and enhancements too. I think Fedora mostly has an edge here because it's partly funded by Red Hat.

    e.g. the lead developer on Ubuntu MATE is the lead developer on the MATE desktop, so anything he fixes in Ubuntu MATE is upstreamed.

    But another thing is Fedora's "upstream first" policy. To improve Fedora, the idea is to improve upstream, which does benefit all distros. Things like Plymouth are Fedora features.

    Most of the dark wallpapers are still better than flashy ones. Fedora 28, 29, 30 had very nice default wallpapers. I also like Vladstudio design.

    By the time you are done ripping unnecessary things out you'll have Puppy Linux and you'll get a nice fast boot time.
