Purism branded wallpapers should be removed
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This was talked in another bug that is now closed so I add a new issue about it.

The Purism branded wallpapers should be removed to conform with the FSF wish to have no visible relation between Purism and PureOS, for the endorsement.

Can the pictures with just rectangles stay?

I will remove the rest in the next upload.

I removed a couple of branded wallpapers, some which contain abstract rectangles still remain. https://github.com/purism/pureos-artwork/commit/6ac75ec8ab5b9c019ed414cfc5607f917d2057f7

Please, remove any wallpaper with a rectangle so we avoid any feedback from the FSF. The Purism rectangle is the logo they don't want to see in the OS. I plan to do a proper logo for PureOS and have a few wallpapers based on this logo for future builds.

Don't worry @mak the OS don't need branding to attract interest. there is no visible brand on the Librem and not having them on the OS is not a problem. Most users like to use their own wallpapers anyway. For those who want to promote Purism, we can propose downloadable Purism wallpapers from the Purism website.

Okay, done - with the next batch of updates, you should have a lot less wallpapers ;-)

Thanks you @mak ! :)
