As to this default background which one exactly are we talking about here, considering the op did not post a screen of it, I cant be certain.

When I installed 7100 I got the same fish wallpaper as 7000, what gives?

I switched to the new mac wallpapers though, they are so nice, they are the two without ms logo obviously.

Is this the aforementioned "glorified" ms default wallpaper you are all talking about?
Ohhh... I can feel it coming.... the one with the waving Windows logo. :)
