Guess what time is it? It’s time to share your desktop wallpaper screenshots! Yes, it is a time honored tradition here at Terminally Incoherent. Every once in a while we all take screenshots of our desktop and share them with the internet to see who has the coolest one. You might win, but I think I have pretty strong entries in this competition.
Once again, I don’t have an unifying theme across all my machines. I only managed to get that sort of coordination back in 2007 when I decided that I will have Eva themed wallpapers on all machines. In 2008 and 2010 my backgrounds had no connections.
First up is my Windows box on which I’m sort of continuing tradition of female robot backgrounds:
The fact that you don’t see a lot of video game shortcuts on the desktop is because 90% of my games now launch via Steam. I even added my non-steam games there, so that I can have access to Steam overlay as I play. No seriously, Steam overlay is probably the best thing about PC gaming – a built in clock, a web browser, and quick screenshots with F12. I can’t play games without that shit anymore. But I digress.
Here is my Mac wallpaper:
Nice, anime themed background – I have the same one on all desktops to keep it simple. I have no clue if this is from some movie, and I don’t particularly care. I randomly found it one day while browsing the web and it became my wallpaper.
Next up, my work laptop:
I tried to keep it neutral and work safe on this one – plain backgrounds, tame landscapes or fractal / abstract CGI art are my usual go-to backgrounds. But one day I found these two guys, and they have been my wallpaper ever since. Everyone at work seems to love them.
Finally, iPhone because it is also a computer:
Orange, paint splash Half Life symbol. How can you go wrong with that?
Now it’s your turn. Take a screenshot of your desktop, or phone lock screen/wallpaper, upload it to Imgur and post it in the comments. Note that comments with more than 3 links usually are automatically held for moderation, so if that happens to you don’t get annoyed.
Show me your desktop!
