If you're using Windows 7 Beta you can download themes, backgrounds, and gadgets from Microsoft's site here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/Personalize

Although labeled as such, i do not consider those "themes" as i have come to know then from 3rd parties. Microsoft needs to get more creative with native windows themes outside of just choosing a different color from a color pallette and changing the picture. They need to add some nice geometry elements and special effects.
However, Thanks a lot for the link! Being a photographer, i do like to see the different art on my desktop.

I completely agree. However, as soon as you put the live essentials on, or even without it, the screen saver has a slideshow as well (two with live essentials instaled.) It almost eliviates the need for a screen saver if your pixels are always changing. I use that and just have my monitor (30in Dell) shut off after 20 minutes. And as a side note, that monitor rocks, as well as gives you a nice tan cuz it is so bright :yowch:

Thanx, gigabot. I was wondering when they were going to come out with more schemes (they are not themes)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
