Description of problem:

The default desktop background is EXCELLENT, but there is one minor problem:  it
is too bright.  Desktop icon labels are hard to read, even shadowed normally.  I

While I don't qualify as visually impaired, I believe other people whose eyes
aren't great will have this problem as well.  The problem is slightly
accentuated on laptop screens.
