      I kid you not, I will try and find the link where the Gnome devs said it was too much trouble to maintain three lines of code.
      Sounds par for the course. They lost so many users with the disastrous Gnome 3 release, and still haven't managed to win them back. Sorry Gnome, it's not me, it's you.

        Then I install something like mpv, which plays everything I throw at it.
        Mesa from RPM Fusion breaks sometimes. Less frequent than build delay issues with Mesa packages from Packman on OpenSUSE, but the whole gimped codecs thing absolutely sucks on every impacted distro.

          But can't they just pay some photographers to shoot and edit some decent pics or something?
          Hell perhaps people would do it for free just for the honor of having their pics added as wallpaper.
          I feel like I'm the only one who actually likes that watercolor styled image.

          They don't even have to pay. There's a lot of free photographs licensed for any and all use. There's also a lot of Fedora users with cameras and/or artistic skills so Fedora could start having wallpaper contests for all sorts of artistic mediums.

          But if Fedora does want to pay, I just happen to have a Pentax KF and the free time to become a travel photographer

              No you're not. I like it also. I also like the new KDE Plasma 6 wallpaper. Bottom line, if someone doesn't like the wallpaper, it is extremely simple to change it. Anyone can grab a random photo on the web. The fact that someone took the time to create some artwork is a nice thing. They volunteered to do it. It's a bit unseemly to criticize their contribution.

                  They do open up submissions for wallpapers for each release. You should submit your own variant and see if others like it.

                    Oh, I did move on long ago - to KDE, and haven't looked back. You sound like an unhappy person. I hope you can find your path some day.
