It’s that time of the year — no matter what holiday you celebrate, the decorations are going up and the mood is becoming festive. But, those decorations inside and outside of your home aren’t the only ones you have at your disposal. Your computer may seem like a tool or a toy, depending on your use, but it is also a showcase for your moods, passions and celebrations. Yes, you can “decorate” your PC every bit as well as your home. And, why not? You probably see quite a bit of it anyway.
You are probably familiar with concepts like “wallpaper” and “themes”, and we will cover those as well, but there are other areas that can be customized, such as your web browser. However, we will start with the more obvious — wallpapers and themes.
As I was setting up my new Windows 8 installation to test new apps on, I decided I wanted a nice and clean Metro or Windows 8 inspired wallpaper other than the default ones, to set it apart and help me differentiate it from my other installations. I decided to give a showcase of some of the wallpapers I came across on my search, in case anyone was looking for anything similar.
While not all of the wallpapers in this post are clean as I was looking for, they are certainly all inspired by Microsoft’s latest operating system to some extent.
