Why Doesn’t Fedora 17 Linux Have a Beefy Miracle Theme?

For the most part, Fedora Linux releases have had names that weren’t particularly controversial. For instance, Fedora 16 was named Verne and the default desktop wallpaper had a submarine type theme (an hommage to 20,000 Leagues under the Sea). With Fedora 17, which was officially released on Tuesday the codename is Beefy Miracle. It’s a theme that has its own mascot and it’s a fun one.

Yet despite that, the default Fedora 17 desktop has no Beefy Miracle.

That’s right, there is no ‘obvious’ connection between the name Beefy Miracle and the default desktop wallpaper/theme.

Why is that?
