I'm using Royale Noir, which is nice. The Zune theme is very like it but has quite a lot of orange bits and pieces which are a bit hard on the eyes.

For a change of desktop background have a look at MS New Zealand.I love the Wellington Harbour mood. click here

When I'm sitting at a computer, I, it or both are doing something. When I'm not using the machine it doesn't matter one jot to me what the background wallpaper or the screensaver are showing as I'm not sitting watching it.

€dstowe ,come on I bet you don't think that when you put on that fancy tie or suit when meeting a client?

You know the value of good packaging.

Sometimes I have 2 or 3 computers running at home and it is therapeutic to view a cool background.

My whole career depends on good packaging. In fact, my whole career is little more than good packaging and the creation thereof but, when I'm meeting clients in my "fancy suit and tie" all the computers they see are busy working away at some project or other. Not a screen saver or fancy wallpaper to be seen!

I was just going to say (ops clumsy finger) that I have just finished building my young daughter a computer for Christmas.

Do I give her a plain old coloured background or a much loved Bratz one? click here

Or maybe a FTSE or DOW background? You guessed right.
