Cool Backgrounds




Are desktop backgrounds still popular?

Yes...but in a clear descending mood. See the chart below:

Do you see? The trend of having cool desktop backgrounds on your "desk" is loosing popularity. Or...isn't it?

I don't often use a desktop image on my computer, and prefer a simple blue wallpaper which allows me to see my folders at once without distractions. Now and then I need to cheer up my comfort zone and so I put some non-distracting, wildlife images or lanscapes for relaxation.

But I think, the use of decorating our "nest" is part of our pre.historical inheritance. It will never disappear completely.

This is why I created this section of my website, in cooperation with three of my "partner" websites, settemuse.it, windoweb.it. cultor.org, which I discovered when I was well into my website development.

I was following an interesting debate on the MAcRumor Forum (I am an old mac fan and started with an Apple II while at University back in 1988...) saying that the best resolution for the iPAd should be 1280x960 and 1920x1440 for proportional reasons and more....So much behind screnn resolution!
