Do you guys use a program to modify the icons? I have to make a shortcut and manually change the icon of that shortcut and move it to the superbar

As you may be able to see, his version is slightly modified. This is probably why he put NFR. I don't think he was intentionally trying to hide a fairly simple wallpaper.

Yes I modified it myself in Photoshop. Whatever the reason may be, it doesn't justify the NFR statement ;)

Why does his NFR statement need to be justified, at all? He's under no obligations, as far as that goes.

That doesn't make him selfish. Maybe it makes you greedy ;)

Is your existence justified?

NFR is for original work; not taking somebody else's work and modifying it and then refusing to disclose the source.

First of all, there's no rules or stipulations that I'm aware of surrounding the use of "NFR". It simply depends on how you understand it; it's flexible. Perhaps he didn't want to offend or upset the original artist of the wallpaper by releasing his modified version to the public, without permission.

Second, I'm not entirely sure when or where in this thread he "refused" to disclose the source, only his personal version. And as I understand it, sharing the source of your wallpaper, icons, etc., is not required in this thread.

So is your attitude justified?

Changed wallpaper, might stick with this one for the rest of the year :p

I wouldn't mind this wallpaper, as well. Very nice and simple. Care to share?

Yeah, I guess since people share things here it seems a little rude to say NFR without stating a reason.

But I've had instances where I made wallpapers out of photo's from Flickr and haven't released them as I respect them.

But honestly, sometimes I forget who took the photo because Flickr doesn't name the images by author or title.
