    Been looking for the background gray linen pattern that is shown in MissionControl and haven't found the original image yet. So I re-patterned it the best I could in case anyone wanted the image.

    Since DP3 i think they switched to the small one which then is tiled. DP1 or DP2 (can't remember) had the big ones 1920x1200.

    That's the background used for the folders in LaunchPad called backgroundTile. There is another one called defaultdesktop, which is lighter in colour and 256x256 pixels.

    I actually changed the Mission Control background to the darker linen pattern, because I thought it looked better. But after a few days I realized Apple was right and changed it back.

    Your tiled version seems to be much lighter than the original.

    EDIT - read the guy above me.
