This is some great news for all Ubuntu users. Sylvia Ritter, an artist from DeviantArt has started a project to create Ubuntu Wallpapers for all the phones and tablets based on Ubuntu. The designs will be inspired from the Linux OS. As for the wallpapers, there is only one word to describe them – priceless. The wallpapers are so intricately designed and everyone will be astonished by the effort put in by Sylvia. Do the names Warty Warthog, Hoary Hedgehog, Breezy Badger and Draper Drake ring any bells? If not, then probably you’re not an Ubuntu Linux user. All of the Ubuntu operating systems have codenames of animals and that is what inspired Sylvia Ritter.


The last version in this lineup is called Xenial Xerus, and there is a total of 23 codenames. As of now, Sylvia has done Ubuntu Wallpapers based on the first 10 versions. Here is a list of the 10 versions for which wallpapers have been released so far. It is highly recommended to check out Sylvia’s DeviantArt page to get all the updates as soon as she releases them.
