Microsoft reveals default Windows 10 wallpaper: your thoughts?

  1. Benjamin Franklin once said, "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes". Well, apparently Microsoft thinks that the only things that are certain in this world are Windows, death, and taxes. When I look at their new wallpaper I see the bright light at the end of the tunnel, which you cannot get to without somehow encountering or using Windows. Hmm.... you can't get to the other side without Windows, so.... Microsoft is God. Yeah, maybe I smoked too much pot when I was younger and that's not the message they're sending. Maybe.
     
  2. Kinda like the OS in general to me...

    nothing special and FLAT!!!!

    You are so close to proving that Microsoft is illuminati, keep going.

    My style is of my own choosing, and it is never a selection from Windows default collection.

    I'm curious how much they paid to have it created.

    it's too light for my taste. using solid black bg since forever.
     
  9. It looks good for a home user but not for a business user. I'm sure they will have other backgrounds to choose from. At my job, we create our own wallpaper that fits our organization.

    Windows 10 definitely looks good though.

  11. I felt I am in a room with locked windows.
    But definitely, it looks standout.

    You can. There's an obvious and easy to see "Skip this step" button when prompted to login or create a Microsoft account.

    You don't even have to do that. They've added a "Skip this step" option during setup --- so there is no need to disconnect from the net.

    I think it looks great! However, someone who is a hater could say it reminds him of smoke and mirrors.

    Excellent. It conveys the mystery of what lies beyond, and the holographic nature of the four panes presents the windows idea as a metaphor rather than a tangible presence. I never thought the XP wallpaper was appropriate. It was beautiful and peaceful, but that's not what computers are about. Computers are about activity and communication; steel, glass, and stone, not meadows sparkling in the early morning sunlight.
     
  18. I don't think it's about the logo itself, but rather the video seems to be a celebration of windows generally, for fans of windows such as myself to enjoy. The journey over the destination sort of thing.

    I like it, it looks much better than the generic wallpapers they have used in the past.
