Here's a dump of one of my wallpaper folders. This is only 146MB out of ~20GB though.. lol. A lot of them in my other folders are unsorted, so it would take far to much time to go through thousands of them. If I run across them one day, I'll post more here. Some of them might be duplicates of ones posted here already, and within my album there may be dupes.. didn't look. I know there are a few that look like dupes but are different resolutions. Hopefully there is something you guys like in there.. :cool:

Yeah they have a very..... un-corporate aesthetic. I suppose GW2K was maybe like that early on.

I have two of their System CDs from 1994 and 1995 486 machines. These were on them. There are some funky videos, sound and MIDIs too, along with drivers and software.

I don't even know why Gateway had such a huge cow fetish back in the day.

Gateway's from Iowa, the farm state, so you can't really blame 'em.

I have some bitmaps I'll need to convert. Bonus points for people who can tell where they're from.

Somebody posted an old Packard Bell wallpaper here. I made a version that would fit my 1366x768 laptop screen. Enjoy! :)

I actually saved it from the Windows 7 beta.

The second is for the original Microsoft Surface (the table version), with text PS'd out.
