Terrible Linux Wallpaper (NSFW)

I never thought boobs could make me depressed.

I'm not sure what's wrong with Ubunchu. It's comparatively ... tasteful.

More depressing still: the thought of explaining to the guys who create those, why they make people less likely to use Linux.

None of these qualify as true Linux wallpapers unless they make Richard Stallman write a 2000 word diatribe about how they violate the GNU.

Some of those are really clever. And some of them are really stupid. Did I get rerouted to Something Awful without noticing it?

I did really like the fifth one (the apple-shaped penguin).

So Ubuntu is Finnish for bunda?

The only one that didn't make me want to go and install Windows on my computer there was the South Park penguins one.

I'm genuinely surprised the difference between the two big recurring themes hasn't been split and there isn't one of Sexy Tux.

This shit is sad and pathetic, there is so much more to linux than the misogyny that pervades linux culture and so much that that misogyny does to fuck it all up.

I remember some of these, or their close analogues, from the late 90s / early 2000s era of everybody posting screenshots of their elaborate and generally hideous desktop setup.

Before it gets all lolneckbeards in here (too late, I suppose), I will observe that, for as many horrifying examples as can be found, these are surely a tiny subset of terrible adolescent male nerd wallpaper as a genre.

They've got both kinds: Angry bitter man child and sexist angry bitter man child.
