  Hi folks,

I agree with Hamish that since it is a 4.x version, it would be better 
to keep the backdrop image.

As for the Desktop icons, even though I agree (personally I don't like 
links on my Desktop) about Desktop cluttering, I think it is helpful for 
people not familiar with the GNU/Linux OS.
And I know a lot of those people that are willing to try OSGeo Live... 
so -1 from me
