Good question, David. I have about 20 or so sites bookmarked for wallpapers but I'll see if I can find it.

Well, I found it on the 14th site I checked.   
http://www.freecomputerdesktopwallpaper.com/wplacesfive.shtml

You'll find a few more Wallpapers on MySharedFiles:

Just a few.... ;D

Thanks to you both, I have just got a new tft monitor Phillips 200w6cs a 20.1" 1680 X 1050 wide screen it looks enormous compared with my previous 17" tft. So now I'm on the hunt for images that better suit this wide scree format (16:10).

It looks a little strange at the moment, I'm waiting on my new graphics card to arrive, my old one doesn't fully support that resolution so I'm currently using 1600 X 1200.

Grrr though it looks nice at first it's really tiring for my eyes. Especially in Firefox.
Bright blue menu highlighting, gold shining program elements. Not good.
Going back to VistaXP...

Everything depends on your taste, I'm not saying everyone should like it  ;)

Thanks, =YLAP= !    :D

I had a little trouble getting it to work. For some reason, I just could not get the UXTheme.dll to work correctly. It installed and I could set everything. BUT, when the computer was restarted, everything was set to Windows Classic. Anyway, I finally got it to work correctly (though I'm not sure how since I tried so many things) and it looks great!    :)

Edit:

RejZoR, perhaps you could adjust your monitor/video card color settings? It is really not so bright to me. But, like =YLAP= says ......

Even better now that I got my new Graphics card yesterday, Nvidia 6600GT, now it is running at its native resolution of 1680 X 1050 (not 1600 X 1200 which was a little squashed fitting 1200 pixels into a 1050 pixel pot) enough for two A4 pages side by side with a little to spare.

Here's more HQ Vista wallpapers. They'll look best using with VistaXP, Luna Element 5 or other Vista-look black themes. Enjoy!  ;D

It looks like hybrid between VistaXP and Luna theme... Quiet nice though...

EDIT:

And can you please tell me where can i find this vista theme?
Thank you! ;)
P.S. Will this hurt system performance?
