      No idea if it’s a wallpaper from the xfce project itself itself or xfce, but actually I do think that they’re an important part of making something feel more modern; and this stylish, minimalistic wallpaper does the trick.

          While it isn’t the most important thing, looks are important. Fact is, I’m gonna be using this every day, so I’d rather it be pleasant to look at. And if it isn’t and there’s no way to make it so, I’ll just skip it. I want using my computer to be enjoyable.

            Looks are important, but whether you want a “stylish, minimalistic” wallpaper or a beautiful Stonehenge scenery [1], that is entirely up to taste and fashion. The discussion of such details is a waste of time, just make it customizable and by default, throw something in that satisfies the majority of the users. Judging a desktop environment on this basis is foolish.
