New Computer, New Desktop

As my Asus Eee netbook committed the kind of suicide that fills the room with the smell of burning plastic, I’ve switched to an 11-inch MacBook Air for on-the-go computing. My background on the Asus was an image from  Shaun Tan’s Tales Of Outer Suburbia, made available by when he was nominated for the Best Artist Hugo award. It’s a lovely image, but new hardware and a new OS require a new decor. Tan’s drawing was intricately detailed and busy, so for the new laptop I’ve chosen something minimal and clean: the poster from my favorite movie, set against a matching background. (Finding images to use that don’t require background fills is a bit tricky; the 11-in. Air has a 1366 x 768 screen.)
