My computer desktop, both under Linux and Windows, is very clean: no icons of any kind, only a couple of semi-transparent widgets like a clock and a calendar sticked on the background. Nothing else. Since I use a personal computer for many hours a day, I want to see beautiful images, not a crappy desktop full of unused icons. So I spend some time looking for wallpapers images, which I usually find in Flickr or site like GNOME-look.org or KDE-look.org.
This morning I was surfing here and there when I run into this site: vladstudio.com. It’s the site of a Russian graphic designer in which you can find plenty of desktop wallpapers. I was struck by the originality of his works and the beautiful colors.
My advice is to take a round on Vlad site and enjoy his art.
