Holy crap; that is a lot of work just to change the background image.

Alternatively, if you want to pay 4.99 USD, you could download Decor8

Nice! Looks very festive. Christmas Lights app would add to that nicely, if it's still around.

Aww that's cute.

Finally a screenshot with the Recycle Bin at the bottom right of screen and a My Computer icon top left, like it always used to be.

I was starting to think I was the only one that still. lol.

Mine for DECEMBER 2012: If you're wondering what's the deal with mixing the album covers of Radiohead's two albums, OK Computer and In Rainbows, take a look at this article:

By the way, I've done this and it's pretty cool. If you have these two albums, I recommend making the playlist

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
