I took my partner’s laptop and kept his thick wall of bamboo plants background and I don’t have a screensaver.

Favorite photos I have taken.

Right now it shows little green tomatoes which remind me how much I enjoyed this summer’s weather.

I use John’s Background Switcher to change the picture every 15 minutes.

It may tell more about us than our garbage.
I switch mine out every 2 days. I have a puppy, a maltese now but often have family members or old friends.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Really! Mine just came that way with the bamboo, and I never changed it.

@marinelife Oh, maybe it’s a standard.

Right now it’s rather crappy photo of St. Basil’s, but it’s normal artsy erotica/nudes. I’ve never, ever had a screen savor – I’m never there to see it, so why put all the effort into something I don’t need?

Background – Something I found on Deviantart. A chibi cat in a cartoon style, poking out the bottum right of the screen with a window above him. The color scheme is black and blue, and the text is: “Stalker Kitteh is watching YOU…you…youyou….

Screensaver: .. Wierdo.. jumpy.. colors. On a black screen. That’s all woo.

My background is a view of Paris. My screensaver is a small rotating collection of old family pictures.

Background: blue with Windows logo in the middle. In other words, the not-quite-offensive-yet-far-from-satisfactory background that came with Windows 7 Starter that you can’t $@”%ing change because it’s Windows 7 Starter. It’s all right, I’m okay.

Screensaver: SETI@Home

YoBob's avatar

Background – An image of the earth taken from a space ship in low earth orbit

Screen saver – I have a defrag utility that runs as a screen saver and displays its progress.
