Flying High with Fedora 7 Preview

The final artwork design and preparation has been turned over to fedora to complete. This preview is closed.


The concept of this submission is based on the open source value of "excellence" and the theme celebrates the level of achievement obtained by the efforts of the fedora community. This concept moves away from the bubble effects of fc5 and the water illusion of fc6 but attempts to retained the round elements found in both with the balloons.

Fedora Images

GRUB (Grand Unified Bootloader)

~-Comments: GRUB (aka Grand Unified Bootloader) is the first screen to accept artwork in the boot process. In most cases the previous and the next screen will be presented with a black backgrounds so this screen is casted in a simular manner. The display time is often two (2) seconds. One of the big issues with this screen is the requirement of a image size of 640x480 pixels and the limit of 16 colors. As the native resolution of the display expands so does the image at the cost of clarity.-~
