Description:

It's a wallpaper born from an idea that came to my mind while on a train.

I have some doubt about licensing GPL since the Windows logo is included, so

if someone who's better than me thinks I AM BREAKING SOME RULES please let me know and I will cancel this upload.

anyway,
The konqui is from Pilaf

The tux is curry svg from (oops, cannot find it)

The landscape that you see from the winxxow(s) is from arenyart

The train photo is by Mckturtle555 (a friend)
Last changelog:

first upgrade: following mockturtle's advice, I changed the look of the text above to look more "on a train".

second upgrade: mockturtle found the wallpaper overall was not fitting the screen, so he rotated it a bit and made some minor changes, and here we are.

This definately made me laugh. It's probably not the sort of thing I would have as my wallpaper, but I have e-mailed it to several friends.

This is cool! thanks. One thing that you could do to improve it is to blend the attention sign in better with the train colors.

There is no concern about the background. I created it from scratch using only inkscape and a reference screenshot. All content is in public domain. By the way---I love this wallpaper (It's not really my style of desktop) but love it still! Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the good work on the wallpaper. I noticed it was GPL, otherwise I wouldn't have used it.
I used it again in this other wallpaper, where i developed the original idea

I have to say: it's not my kind of wallpaper either, but I had the idea and I thought to make a w-paper :)

railways (like me:D)...the train is a TAF (something like Train High Frequentation = Treno ad Alta Frequentazione).
Some info (in IT) http://www.trenitalia.it/it/treni_stazioni/regionali/flotta/taf.html

PS.lavoro stupendo, molto originale:)
