    hey guys

    Im the mac guy at my university...I maintain all the public labs on campus, and i have a question for you guys. Im trying to come up with a cool background for my labs. I just made the one for the windows computers and posted it below. It is really simple and all i did was add the university logo to a Vista desktop...that is what all the windows guys asked me to do. I want a good one for the mac labs...but there is no way in heck that i will put the vista one on my macs. So i need some ideas for a cool desktop image. I know my tastes, im not really sure what is appropriate for a public lab. The only criteria is that i need to be able to add the university's name. Thanks for any ideas!

    I know this is boring, but what about a default Mac one with the university logo?

    as far as the default one...we would like to make one that will be used for leopard in Oct, but some of the macs are not going to make the upgrade for a little while...we what to be able to the lab assistances (not electronically inclined people) to be able to tell the difference between leopard and tiger just by looking and I think that the logo would be hard to do with the leopard grass scene...also, would like something that is new and better than the windows one :)

    You could use Aqua Blue for the tiger machines and Flow 3 on the Leopard ones, as I'm sure Leopard will come with the Tiger wallpapers so you don't have to use the grass one ;).

    good call, good call... I didnt even think about the other defaults except for aqua blue and the grass in tiger and leopard respectively. That will definately work, but if anyone has any other ideas or stumbles across something that would be cool on a campus computer i would love to see any other ideas, if not i will use a couple of default ones...Mostly i just want something cool for the students who obviously have better taste and are using the macs:cool:
