Amongst a mailing list thread about Ubuntu's alpha/beta wallpaper design, there was some lamenting about how it takes too long to agree on a wallpaper. And while I admittedly know absurdly little about the inner workings of the distro and its administration, I found the following comment quite funny:
"I do agree that it takes waay too long to choose a wallpaper. We should organize a third-level subcommittee to fix this."
Hopefully, a third level subcommittee consists of one guy alone in a room choosing the wallpaper.
