I made Slackware Linux 9.1 in Blender and get idea to make fancy wallpaper. This is product of my open mind design :)
Solid 3D text Slackware Linux 9.1 was tranparent on some places where is visible green 3D contur lines.
This is version with black background. I made it more in yellow, green, blue, white, orange, red, magenta and pink colors.
If you wish, I can send to you blender construction of this text (about 100KB in bzip2 package).
