Hi there.

It seems that setting up custom backgrounds seems to be too difficult. There
is, obviously, no way to capture the taste of any possible user with a
default background. So, we might want to provide some alternatives. Hmmm...

For a single project, you can just drag-drop any picture into Squeak, then
right-click and choose "Set as background". This way seems to be useful
because many of our students configured their desktops quite nicely.

You can also choose any color as you project background. Is this difficult
to discover?

Anyway, there is no reason why we couldn't provide a set of three (?)
alternative patterns for the default background. Maybe as simple as
switching between uniform window colors and colorful windows.
