Linux News Today: Fedora 24 Linux Default Wallpapers Revealed, They're Truly Gorgeous – Gallery
Fedora Project’s Sirko Kemter announced the winners of the community wallpapers that will be included in the upcoming Fedora 24 Linux operating system, due for release on June 7, 2016.
The Fedora 24 Linux distribution is currently in heavy development, and it only saw a first Alpha release until now, unveiled at the end of last month, so it’s now time for early adopter and public beta testers to get their hands on the Beta build of the upcoming Linux kernel-based operating system sponsored by Red Hat.
As with every new release of the Fedora Linux OS, the artwork is being tweaked, optimized, and revamped, with a new default wallpaper, as well as a brand-new set of supplemental desktop background images contributed by various members of the Fedora community as part of a well-organized contest.
“Voting is now closed on the supplemental wallpapers for Fedora 24. The results are available for all to see on the wallpaper voting app. In the Fedora 24 cycle, the Fedora Design team received 133 valid submissions from many existing and new contributors to supplemental wallpapers,” said Sirko Kemter in the announcement.
