I was wondering what wonderful wallpapers and icons and stuff you mac users have to decorate your finder. I'm a fairly new Mac user, so if you can point me in the right sites and stuff, that would be cool.

I use xback to run the screen-saver on my background. But only sometimes.

Sorry, I don't decorate my Mac Finder. But I do have a bunch of cards tacked to the wall behind and around my monitor.

Does that count?

I remember some holiday desktops with Nitrozac and the TTBs. But I can't find them this year. Can anyone help?

What's this? A list with desktops? It's not even completed!

If you want genuine 'mac-ness', you have to turn to < http://www.mandolux.com/ > the website of Mando Gomez. Also called 'the best' [Wink] .

There is nothing better. Nuff' said- [Razz]

For what it's worth, he has been my desktop supplier since time wasn't even invented and dinosaurs were roaming the earth... [Big Grin]

I usually am rather picky about what I throw on my desktop though I usually like what I find at Icons.cx.

I use Osaka River (located near the bottom of the page) on my XP machine while on my Mac I use a picture I took of a bridge where I used to live (no picture posted online).

I recently "decorated" my Mac by painting my monitor silver. I figured it would look very sleek, but considering I used acryllic paints, and I'm not a very good painter, it looks like one of those painted cardboard monitors from those old movies that try to look futuristic. It still looks cool though.

I use primarily the artwork of Boris Vallejo, Horst P. Horst, Chris Ali, Laura Addams, and a few others. Mostly nudes, some landscapes. Rotating every 30 minutes.
