Colour of the future?

OK, this is NOT a serious question - however: Is there already a color for the corporate identity of Daedalus selected by the veterans? What will come after Gray, Red and Blue?

Regards
Berni

I vote for ultraviolet big_smile


To obtain a root shell use su -. Using just su will result in "command not found" messages.

You would have to ask the person who does the artwork for the desktop themes, and as I understand it, that position is now open.

(So maybe HoaS' choice is correct.)

Interesting that you would say that . . . the original color for jessie was going to be "leafy green" but it got voted down by devuan users.

If anyone is interested in taking on the theming of Daedalus, ping me.  smile

I think we could consider (in some way) honouring the name.

I could not find a colour associated to Daedalus (the architect, father to Icarus), but there is a butterfly (found all over Africa), called Hamanumida daedalus [genus - species], which has a lovely green colour in its wings:

That would be HEX: #806a55, RGB: rgba(128,106,85,255) or something close to that.

Best,

That's pretty much the process I went through for ASCII, beowulf and chimaera.  Feel free to take over the task. There is a short HOWTO here.

But also note that #806A55 is a nice almost chocolate and nothing to do with green . . .

@zephyr . . . Does this suit you? Presentation is framed because the light BG kills it.
