Snow Leopard Desktops Make Their Way to the Web

| News


Apple's Mac OS X 10.6, or Snow Leopard, operating system upgrade may still be weeks away, but its collection of Desktop pictures have already found their way onto the Web.

The collection of 35 images generally fits with Apple's trend towards serene or subdued scenes, but a few may feel too busy to use as full-time Desktop pictures.

Windows 7's Wallpapers have also appeared online even though Microsoft's latest OS release is still weeks away, too. The collection of 30 images has an overall busier feel that the Snow Leopard Desktops, but they also show Microsoft's efforts to shed its stodgy business reputation.

I downloaded the OSX wallpapers and they are nice. The set includes some by painters such as Van Gogh and Monet, there are several photos of a snow leopard.

It seems to me that half of the Windows 7 wallpapers are geared towards kids. Not that it is a bad thing, it is just an observation.


I seriously doubt that some of those Leopard wallpapers are real/final versions. Some of the snow leopard photos just seem too massy and un-apple-ish, and the quality of some of the art photographs is just bad (especially Hopper’s Nighthawks).
