I haven't taken a look at the actual design, so I do not have an
opinion on the discussion here.
What I like is the idea to involve users into defining the future
But I guess we should rethink the way of doing it. I do not believe

users. Thus the results are subject of discussion.
I more than happy to help finding / defining better ways to involve
users in future if there is a larger interest in this topic.
All the best,

Rename splash.png from the package as intro.png and place it along
sofficerc, backing_left.png, backing_space.png, and
your home folder. Then open the Terminal and write the following:
