    Hahah, Elledan!

    Not sure if you knew or not.. but I darkened that "dreadful, eye-straining background" on my site and on my desktop so its much smoother and quieter

    You mean that dreadful, eye-straining background?!?

    /me feels himself slowly getting sick when he tries to imagine how it must be to look each day at that background

    You mean this: http://www.sports-central.org/stuff/desktop2.gif is "dreadful and eye-straining"? I don't know what world you're living on, but it is sweet on my computer.

    My current background is the Pawsitronic.com background (the little computer board thing). Its not distracting at all, and looks pretty cool too.

    I have wallpaper set to none in my control panel. I just have the patterns set at "field effect", and it gives me a pleasant blue-black pattern.

    I generally just like to have a nice deep dark blue color on my desktop.

    I have still the same wallpaper on my desktop which came when the computer arrived.

    Well it is blue. Why would I want to change backgrounds? This is nice blue and most of the time 5 windows are open...

    When I don't have wallpaper, I usually have a medium to dark blue. The HEX is usually between 336699 and 000080.

    I have had real wallpapers but they seemed to slow down my sytem and the icons didn't look good on them so I kept the compaq thingie.

    I'm also no big fan of themes. I just have everything like it was at the start only I chaned the colors of the title bar of windows (it fades from dark blue to ocean blue)

    Wallpapers don't slow down a system...unless it is Active-Desktop (WWW) content.

    Well, I did have a Bubble Yum one. But I just changed to the one mjames posted. Thought it looked nice.

    I've noticed that the system won't slow down if you're using Windows 2000 instead of Windows 98.

    I think loading a 500k wallpaper with many colors etc etc instead of a 200k image with not much tralalala would slow down your system. (because I think the image gets loaded in the ram and I can't scan images bigger than 50mb and my ram is 64mb)
