The Linux Journal has a lengthy report
from a talk by GNOME and Ubuntu hacker Jeff Waugh. "Apparently Mark [Shuttleworth] originally wanted, given that Ubuntu is Linux for human beings, the first release of Ubuntu to carry a tasteful, artistic picture of a naked woman. This caused everyone in the company and community to offer some version of 'this is a very bad idea'. So, the community got Mark to step away from that in stages. In the end Mark backed down. The upshot of all of this has been that the pictures used for release versions of Ubuntu depict at least one man, at least one woman, at least two races--and everyone is fully clothed.
