I was wondering how many of you use a background wallpaper for your desktop?

Reason is that I just have a pitch black color.

I used to have wallpapers but I like the solid color better because my icons stand out better.

You have seen my desktop in some of the screenshots I have posted.

Post a screenshot of your current desktop

If you use paint you can blot out sensitive stuff if you need to

I'm using a silhouette style Mutant Chronicles wallpaper presently, since it is dark and easy on the eye.

hoohoo! I bet those desktop icons slow up your boot!

I may use a wallpaper, but have a high end pc so it doesn't matter for me. But desktop icons really slow booting up and explorer.exe issues, so I make folders to drop everything into on my desktop :

security : AV, spyware, download tools
AudioVideoImagery : contains everything that plays and edits those three
Gaming : shortcuts in here, including games, Teamspeak, Fraps, etc
Software : shortcuts that don't fit in the above!
Writing : contains mine
School : anything to do with that

I hate unnecessary waiting to boot up really.

I hit the button, plug in my password and go do something - The only time I wait for it is on a reboot and it doesn't take long at all. In fact I never noticed.

skwirlinator yours reminds me of jeff goldblum in the fly, he did the same thing and wore the same thing cause he didnt like to think about change. nice idea though and i see such a variety of backgrounds here. tells alot about the people.

I rotate out my wallpapers every now and then. Currently on my regular computer I have Scotty (as portrayed by Simon Pegg), and my laptop has a Persona 3 wallpaper.
