Ok it is going to be a long post .... I am showing the steps I have taken to make that wallpaper .
First, make a background like this one, using paint bucket tool and soft brush .

Now put a layer on it, fill it with black, render lens flare 50-300mm zoom , change the color to blue (ctrl+u) Duplicate the lauer, hide the duplicate, and apply Gaussian blur 30.8 .

N ow a brush is needed . It is rotated ... applied, color is changed, opacity is reduced, and unnecessary parts are removed by soft eraser .

Taken a windows logo (self made, too) applied distort to make it look like floating ... removed the edges by soft eraser . Set the layer to opacity, and duplicate it .

Finally, Select the logo (ctrl+mouse click) select the Color logo and select inverse (right click, it is in the context menu) , hit delete . The unneeded parts will be deleted. set the layer to color. Do it for all the four squares .
