Simple Desktops

One of the strangest ADD-type things I suffer from is finding a fitting desktop wallpaper for my computer. I hate desktop clutter, which is pretty much why I hate Windows — tell me why I can’t move the trashcan off the desktop in 2011? — aside from other reasons. Anyways, it feels like I’m always changing my desktop image because I can never find one that is unobtrusive enough or soothing, or mostly, just something I can ignore.

Thankfully, I recently discovered Simple Desktops, which is a “a collection of desktop wallpapers curated by Tom Watson designed to make your computer beautiful without distraction.” IT. IS. AMAZING.

Here are a few that caught my eye!

I don’t think I’ll ever be visiting another desktop wallpaper site ever again. This is my new crush. Every image is 2560 x 1600 px.

      Derp, I'm still rocking XP unfortunately. That's probably my problem. I hope you're not being sarcastic when you say great site. I'd like think so. My raging and fragile ego probably couldn't handle the truth.
