Hi, I am new. My name's Ryan.

I hope this is allowed here. My friend Thomas and I have shared this at over 30 boards and only two deleted it so far as far as we know.

We have permissions to do what we do, so there is no need to be concerned about legal matters.

I'd like to share the famous big collection of default Microsoft (Windows), Apple (Mac), Linux, and OEM wallpaper backgrounds that my friend (Thomas) and I spread to many boards. We've been doing this for so long and it gets appreciated where ever it goes.

We'll make future updates in the form of ImageShack uploads and post the thumbnails linking to the original sizes of the wallpapers, and also post updated RAR links.

We also have galleries for quicker and easier viewing.

This is our way of contributing immediately after joining any community we go to. It will definitely bring many searchers; just keep an eye on the topic views back out in the forum. I guarentee from past experiences this will bring you many new visitors and hits.

I will try to invite Thomas and maybe he will drop on by later to say some more meet & greet.

Recently, we have gotten some requests for permission to use these wallpapers, and links to the downloads, on other websites. We ask that, if you do wish to, please feel free, however, we do want some form of recognition for doing the work. Something along the lines of "Created and maintained by Ryan & Thomas" would be sufficient. Also, we ask that you PM us the link, send us a board email, or post the link here after you have done so. This way, we can know just how far our project is spreading. Thanks for the appreciation, the contributions, and the support you've all given us. We're always on the hunt for more, so please, if you have something you don't think is in our list, feel free to share, and we'll be glad to include it. Thanks again, and happy downloading!

Indeed, Thomas does help me with this project of ours. When updates come about, he'll likely be the one to post them. We hope this contribution will be enjoyed here as much as it is at other places around the web. We try to bring new material at least once a month, but it varies, sometimes more sometimes less. Enjoy it in any case, and if you have something that you feel we should include, please feel free to share. Thanks, and enjoy!

These wallpapers are not created by us, they are what comes by default with the versions of Windows, Mac OSX, various Linux distros, and the many OEM computer distributors. We collect them as a hobby though, yes.
