i also saw it on pixelgirl and this was the favorite from there to pick.
and that's hard to beat, pixelgirl has lots of great desktop, you should be proud of yourself
just one thing, i use windows xp and the text is white, and since the background is bright its hard to read and i cant change the test color of the icons, only size and font
what do do?
You go into your display settings and under the Appearance tab click advanced or settings or something. (Not 100% sure cause I'm on a windows 2000 PC right now). If that doesn't work right click on My Computer, select Properties, and under the advanced tab select the Performance Options. You have to enable drop shadows from either location. Then you can read text on light backgrounds.
anyways ... awesome wallpaper! I too saw it on Pixel Girl. I just hope there's a 1280x1024 version soon!
Oh bummer. I don't know what to tell you. I use XP too and I just never had a problem reading the text because of the drop shadow they give it. Sorry, I didn't even think about that when I was designing the wallpaper. I'll have to keep it in mind for the next one.
