If anyone wants to see it in a bigger size, click Here for 1024X768


The Wallpaper is from art.gnome.org and it's a simple Blue Matrix wallpaper. It's clear that the artist was influenced by the default Panther wallpaper although he did change some little things like curves et al. I liked it. Very rainish.

You can get the wallpaper Here

For anyone wondering: the OS is Ubuntu 5.04 pre-release (codenamed Hoary Hedgehog) which is due out sometime in April.

Oh man, I was going to get it over there... but I didn't see it. I also couldn't download the .zip's. I guess you have to be registered.

Here's my desktop right before my reformat (linked for size):


I need to get some updated pics of everything.

He does have great desktops. I've got a big folder full of them. I'd like to get one huge .zip of all his stuff.

I've got 643MB of wallpapers already, what's another half-gig between friends?

God (Seagate) gave me a 300GB hard drive for a reason!

Seriously. If someone starts a torrent of all your desktops (highest-res for each) I would seed for a long time.

I'd seed too.

Quite an addition to my 736MB of desktop pics.

Mando,

Have you considered selling CD with all your images at all available resolutions? I would like to have them all but I am afraid that doing something like that would hurt your website bandwidth.

Yes (a long time ago back when my site was over 1.2gigs). I've also been thinking of making a whole bunch of desktops to give out when someone makes a donation (I have so much stuff to work on)

BTW, if anyone knows where I can get a 1024x768 version, I'd love to know, as I only have a 800x600 version stretched to fill the screen.

You could recreate it on FreeHand or Illustrator in 5 minutes. You could even do it on Photoshop with the drawing tool.

I could, but I have zero artistic talent, not even enough to recreate this relatively simple drawing .

Only 15 days left until I'll be there.

Mando - i for one would be happy to buy your stuff in CD form. I don't know exactly how many it would fill up, or if it would be easier for you to use DVDs (assuming you can burn DVDs). I would definitely buy it though.

I second this. I am ready to buy a collection of wallpapers you put on a CD or DVD without second thoughts. Definitely worth it.

Me too, high-res pics of New York would be great. Skyline, popular places (St. Patrick's Cathedral, Time Square, SoHo Apple store) or just in general streets. It is such a vibrant city, it makes for great desktops.
