I don't mind the background on the home screen, but I think it shouldn't propagate to the Apps screen (or anywhere else except may the lock screen). Also, with a few live tiles flicking around, even having a background on the home screen might get a bit much. Still, having the option to do it can't hurt.

Just give people options, those want to use it can pick any wallpaper or background they want, those that dislike it can turn off the feature
same as Android; not everyone use fancy background or live wallpaper, but the option is there for those interested

For me, having more options is not bad at all. The greater the amount of the options given, the wider the consumers are catered. Just take this feature as an example... Through this, WP will not just cater the simple people but also the creative ones.
Regarding the app sccreen, I believe they can do something about it... They can make the image darker so that it will still remain clean-looking. :)
BTW, sorry for my English. I'm not that confident with my English skills. Haha. :D

I honestly don't see what the point is in this. The background picture is almost completely invisible in the Start screen, contributing only by adding unnecessary visual noise. The situation is better in the App list, but whatever aesthetic value the background picture has is severely restricted when the list of applications overlays it. Usually at this point someone pulls out the argument of choice, but why offer options that enable users to shoot themselves in the leg?

"Windows Phone looks like THAT? It looks like rubbish!"
It would be detrimental to the user experience (even if the user doesn't realize it) AND could possibly be detrimental to the platform itself too.

This is not a bad option. Through this, we can customize our Lumias/Windows Phones further. We can make them more unique than ever.
You know, it just depends on the user. As a user, you ALWAYS want your phone to look GOOD.
Actually, wallpapers can make our start screens a lot more beautiful if we just pick the RIGHT one.
Have you seen the ambiance feature of Sailfish from Jolla? That's what I am talking about. Matching the colors altogether to create a beautiful, clean, and consistent UI.

As others have said, make it an option. If you don't want to use it, don't.
