    For starters, rather than ranting up a stinkola, you might take 
things into your own hands and create several background pictures in 
400x240 format that looks attractive to you and rotate them into the 
home page background.  In 08OS, many of the home page apps have a 
partially transparent mode that lets the background bleed thru.  After 
working with it for a while, you might grow fond of the customizable 

    Also, just because the new home screen is different doesn't make it 
ugly.  Everything is in constant evolution.  If you give things a few 
weeks/months, some other themes may appear.  You may or may not like 
them when they arrive.  Given your splatting your extreme negativity all 
over this list, I'd not expect a lot of warm fuzzy support from 
developers listening to any of your critiques of their work. 


Always, Dr Fred C
