If you’ve been to KDE-look or sites like Interfacelift, you’ll know that people love their wallpapers. Although there are some guidelines for “What makes a good wallpaper?” it still often remains a matter of personal taste. And Nuno’s recent wallpaper is one of my favorites:
The funny thing is that this wallpaper also seemed vaguely familiar to me. Last night, I remembered why: A few years ago, I was trying to take some photos at night during a snowstorm and my auto-focus was catching different flakes and refused to cooperate. I didn’t notice this until after reviewing my first shot, which looks like nothing in particular it’s so abstract:
I’ve put two 1920X1200 versions in my image gallery if anyone wants an inferior version with a story behind it. Anyway, great work Nuno, I just love the balance, the color palette, the simplicity, everything; it’s really a top-flight default first impression for users.
