I made these high-quality wallpapers for people who are dual booting OS X and Windows. They look nice in either operating system and you might enjoy them if you're a "neat freak" like I am. It combines visual aspects of both without creating a bad aftertaste. In this way, you can stick to one uniform wallpaper for both desktops.

All wallpapers are 1680 x 1050 unless otherwise noted.

Wallpaper without Operating System Logo

UPDATE 1: Included wallpapers for Vista, Home Edition, and Professional Edition. Also included a "virgen" wallpaper with no logos at all. Touched up the over-all image to remove the left-over rainbow effect and sharpened the hill's border with blue. Made 1024x768 Home Edition and OS X wallpapers for Mx34u. Anybody else who wants a resized wallpaper, just ask.

UPDATE 2: Added a new request, Ubuntu Linux Dapper Drake

UPDATE 3: Added the request for a blue apple OS X logo

Very nice idea and good implementation! I like them. But I would like them most if the OS branding was removed...could you perhaps upload a "virgin" version as well? ;) thx..

I'll see what I can do about removing the rainbow that was left over from the Media Center wallpaper. Maybe it'll be as simple as selecting it and using Photoshop's hue/sat adjustment's "colorize" option.

By demand, it won't have any OS logo / text either. It'll be "virgin." And I'll also post 1024x768 and 1280x1024 variations. :hysterical:

For Mx34, I'll make a custom Home Edition one for if the ones I make aren't what he or she was looking for.

Yeah, but he wants the Ubunu logo, with the operating system "Ubuntu, Version: Drapper Drake" written on it ;)

Can I have a 1600x1200 of the OS X version, please? :D

Also, I didn't realise drapper drake has been released! I think I'll have to go get that in a min!

Takuro, would you mind to upload a .zip file of these to the forum, or just upload the pics themselves?

In case any websites link to this thread, I'd like to have a local copy since imageshack just drops pics after a certain amount of bandwidth.

Thanks!
