Where do you get your desktop wallpaper background?

Dont say google.

Are there any decent websites that actually has good desktop background wallpaper?

I am looking for a nice looking, dark/blackish one.

I know you don't want "google" as an answer, but this is just as much for anyone who reads the post and may not know...

Google recently (within the last few months or so) added a few new tricks to their image search, which easily allow you to further filter results very easily. Go to Google Images click the link next to the search box. This will easily allow you to filter results by size, content type, color type, and a few others. Once you search for an image, or generic theme, you can narrow it down further by selecting one of the generic colors available there.

It's not the best resource out there for images, but it is by far the largest, which has made it very easy for me to locate about 12 high quality 1280*1024 images I use for cycling backgrounds.

I use deviantart. Try customization>wallpaper in the Categories section on the left hand side, and then you can search each sub-category once you've got there.

Hi there
Don't underestimate the resource - but wht not just click on "Get more themes online" in the personalize option..

There's loads of beautiful wallpapers from quite a few countries.

Excellent starting place.
For example I'm using the lovely Jaguar from Brazil on my W2K3 server as background

Cheers
jimbo
