Does anyone have the grey striped/pattern background from the screen above as a wallpaper? Looks good.

Apple is currently in the process of updating its dev site with a new Lion build. Once it goes live, I'm sure the wallpaper will appear on the Internet soon (I'll post it in this thread later tonight).

The first time it was used was on iOS 3.2 for iPad, as scratch texture for unloaded pages in Safari... then it was the background of folders in iOS4 then in Lion ;)

The concept behind the fabric is that it is behind the OS. It's what you get when you remove all the GUI. Hence it's there behind mission control. It's there on the unused screen when you full screen dual screens. It's what you see behind web pages when you scroll. It's there when you shut down and also now when you log in.

So really it's meant to signify the "behind the scenes".

Actually, try to flip any Apple widget (like Stickies, Clock, Weather) :D ;)

That Galaxy is the Andromeda Galaxy (M31)!

Maybe, just maybe, they'll name all the different versions of Mac OS 11 after astronomical objects?

OS 11.3... Horsehead Nebula
OS 11.6... Ring Nebula
OS 11.9... Supernova!

That clearly isn't the correct image. It's far darker and has weird spots everywhere. Not at all crisp like the real one.

I've taken a smaller image and tiled it into 2560x1600 resolution. No lines, tiles perfectly. So use this one instead of that previously posted!

Here's a comparison of the real one and the previous one posted...

I suppose it would all have to start with OS 11.1 ... the Big Bang.
