wallpapers in my opinion plays an important role in our life as everyday we have to turn our mindless boxes on , do something which looks dull ,nothing happend (atleast by looks....)
so everyday i change the look & feel of my box ( takes only five minutes...... )

if you want to share these ideas ................. please post your current desktop look

I personally have never understood the idea. Real furniture -- real tables and desktops -- don't have images on them; they serve as a neutral backdrop for the more interesting things you put on top of them. Having a picture on my computer desktop is to me just an unwelcome distraction; therefore I always use a plain, solid color (a sort of sky blue, generally, but that's mostly because it's a default offered by several vendors.)

I'm sort of in the same boat as EFH, but I like the OS X abstract patterns. For me they serve the same non-distracting purpose, but with more interest than a solid color.

I don't see my computer desktop much, usually it's hidden by various applications.

Mostly I choose pictures from Astronomy Picture of the Day, but at the moment I have a photograph of my wife with backpack and wind-blown rain cape on the Laugavegur hiking trail with Brennisteinsalda volcano in the background.

Exactly. Now, my "screen-saver" (which I have enabled for the password protection) displays photos from my iPhoto collection -- that way, I get to actually see them (as opposed to a Desktop, which I rarely see).

i always find wallpapers do nothing but make it harder to see my icons and the associated text. So, i always go for solid black. everything then pops on the screen, making them easier to read/see/find.

Which Ubuntu distribution and theme are you using? I am looking for some good theme for my Ubuntu 9.x and would like to have smaller icons placed on my desktop.

I hate any kind of icons on my desktop. I prefer it clean.

Unlike my real desktop, I try to keep my computer's desktop uncluttered, with only what I'm working on at the time. (Folders in OS X's dock helps a lot.) I like this graphic because it's asymmetrical, so I can keep a short column of icons on one side without it being too busy.

I like this one too. (A blurred version might be even better.)

Given the average age here, I wonder if you and I, and a small handful of others (EFH, and Jim, I'd wager) are the only one's to get this.

I did once. But the doctor's desk was too cluttered so I walked out.

Ah, yes... The Indian headdress version. There might be a couple of reasons you don't see that today.

The pattern I posted above is my iPhone wallpaper. I don't know how ironic that is, but it looks cool to me.

I just installed the latest version of Mac OS X, codenamed Snow Leopard, on my MacBook Pro.

Currently I have this one as my wallpaper, it's one of the wallpapers that comes with the OS.

Sorry. Can't remember.
Just google for Ubuntu wallpapers and you will get a zillion hits. This one must be from one of the 1st few, because I am lazy
