Linux has has hundreds of cool backgrounds called Propoganda. This is one example from 1999.

You can get them by installing a Red Hat 6.2 iso into a vm. Then drag them from that.

Some pretty good stuff there. A lot of images were done using GIMP.

GIMP is a wonderfull tool... the more I use it, the more I love it!

Reminds me of when I first fell in love with Deluxe Paint and then later Paint Shop Pro

I must admit though that I fall back to a simpler tool when I do not need all the filters etc.. I am still trying to get used to how the generic pixel pushing works in GIMP

That's cool. Going through my old OS/2 v4.5 install to see what is on it over the last few days and tidying links up. It's been a while since the hdd was powered up. On it is a directory of 800 ico files. I can can try and zip them up if anyone is interested. They were free so no issues there. Can't exactly remember were I got them. Hobbes possibly.

Screen shops were taken in GotCha!, converted to jpeg from bmp in Embellish 2.0, which was given away free for Win9x and OS/2 when it was no longer commercially viable. I'm using File Commander for OS/2. It's a lot quicker than digging around in the default set up.I'll repost this in the OS/2 thread.
