  1. Thank you for this. I really love #2 and #8 dude. These will look good on my HP mini-note.

  2. Yeah! I really love the BigTux one.

    Here is my Wallpaper :

    I made it very clean and simple, it's just a green gradient with three icon : hacker's emblem, the copyleft logo and the Debian logo.

    Feel free to use, modify and redistribute it (Creative Commons BY-SA) :-).

  3. Wanted to use #13 but my netbook has a slightly larger display, do you know where I can find the original image?

  4. nice!

    is there any chance of a 1024x600 image set for the native resolution of my eeepc901??

  5. These wallpaper are awesome, especially the Linux Crystal. However I'm using Dell 19" widescreen with the resolution of 1440 x 900. Does anyone has the link for original size?

    #20 is hilarious.

  7. For Performance, make a small image and match
    the Desktop color to make it look like a big image. There is also no stretching to fit screen :D
