What's your wallpaper?

  1. Just wondering what everybody's wallpaper is on their Linux desktop. Post the wallpaper download link and the image preview and let's get this thread going! :cool:

    Here's mine:

    It's actually from an older version of OpenSUSE, but I liked it so much I kept it ;)

    What's yours?

    I use a basic wallpaper and i'm kind of into keeping stuff on my desktop simple, i'm running Windows 7 and it's the default wallpaper i'm on.

    You can know how simple it is, view it here : http://i.imgur.com/UECy2.jpg

    There is just no way that I could resist this. I mean come on...

    Ok, time for a little honesty...

    My desktop wallpaper is constantly changing, as I never seem to be satisfied. I have several that I use as templates for automation tasks so that I can line up windows just right for dogtail, etc..

    I stole this image from Flickr. It's kind of pretty I guess. I don't see my desktop that often, though. View attachment 140

  6. Is that Deadmau5? :D

    Haven't listened to any of his music but he looks cool.
  7. I don't own a Linux at the moment, but I usually stick with the default wallpapers that are included with the laptop I received. It looks really nice and fits neatly. I don't plan on investing on wallpapers anytime soon, though, even with a Linux in hand.

    Yes that is who that is. Music is awesome. I listen quite a bit while I am working.
  9. You should install "a Linux" and learn how to use it. It's awesome :)

    Also, it would be nice if you stopped calling it "a Linux". Some people may laugh at you :p
    I like dubstep sometimes, but definitely not while working. Really distracts me. I usually play it during games for that epic moment.

    I'm using this. I basically just searched for 'Linux wallpaper' on Google and found a decent one within the first couple of pages. As you can probably see, I hate Windows (and Vista in particular).

  12. My wallpaper is of Cinderella's Castle at Disney World. I am too lazy to post it, but if you google image search it it is the one with the purple/pink castle with lights on it and a black background. It is really pretty! I have always wanted to live in that castle haha. One day I will! You have to believe ;)

    Though this is a Bodhi Linux wallpaper, I find myself using it on both my Xubuntu system and my Windows 7 system. I get the slightest giggle whenever I see it. I think it's a great concept and I love the overall artwork of it. It is relatively simple, but I love it.

    I must admit that I change my wallpaper quite often, on both computers, so I may be posting here more often. Definitely liking the other wallpapers that I have seen thus far.

    I am still thinking of the pros and cons of getting a linux but if ever I do get one, I will definitely use a default blue screen. Help keeps the memory consumption down.

    My wallpaper is the regular default image that came with the computer. I am looking to change that eventually perhaps to something more festive or artsy. Most of the art @ Sweet Station has had me in a real artistic kind of mood. I have been pouring over the archives for weeks now.
  16. I am a huge fan of http://www.deviantart.com and I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a large collection of wallpapers. Some are rather out there or not particularly my style, but I have so many stored in a folder that I use for both my desktop and laptop. You can get everything from artsy to anime to simplistic - there are even "packs" that you can download with a variety in one zip file.

    Here's my current desktop setup/wallpaper.

    My wallpaper is a big red crimson omen from the Gears of War series. It basically looks like a heart-beating but instead of a heart being there it is the crimson omen logo. I tried to post the wallpaper as a URL but it says the image is too large :(. I can't seem to find another one that is not 1920x1080! Though you probably get the overall idea of it.
