Hi all.

There's one aspect of Windows XP I love; and it's a trivial one: their awesome desktop backgrounds. I've been searching for 10 minutes now trying to find a full 1024x768 collection of 'em all. Does anyone know where I could find these marvelous images? I'd really like to use them for my (fluxbox - for those who are interested) background.

Cheers, Ben.

Do you have access to a machine running XP?...you can just grab em out of the folder they reside in...

located in C:\WINDOWS\Web\Wallpaper

Although they are only 800x600.

Think i may blend some evil pictures into them and then replace peoples desktops with my "evil" modified versions.....Muhahahahaha

Hahaha, do one of Azul, make it a bit subtler than the Bliss one- but not too subtle. I want to get my dad with it- he uses that desktop.

OMG you have far too much spare time metla. That last one kinda reminds me of Farcry, i can just imagine Jack Carver running across the screen.

Simple cut and pastes, Anyone with real skills would rip those to pieces, the rough edges even bug me and I have low standards

............HA

as for the backdrop, One of the greatest alums in recent times, I challenge anyone with an ear for this sort of carry on to listen and not be impressed.

Not that Iím biased or opinionated or anything.
