As some supplemental material for the “Think Design Stories” episode I did with David Hill on the subject of wallpaper, please find below a collection of resources. If you haven’t seen the video yet, or want to hear the story again, please find the video below.
For those that want a good look at the original map David Hill used, see the image below.
ThinkPad ThinkCentre Active Desktops
- The above link contains both Active Desktops for ThinkPad and ThinkCentre machines that support Active Desktops. They display key system information for your wallpaper.
- A collection of ThinkPad screensavers.
- A modern, lightweight program that allows Windows 10 to run a website as a background image. While it is far from perfect, it is the closest thing I’ve found to do the job.
- The original dynamic wallpaper remake originally hosted on axofiber.info but occasionally the host does not work. The highest supported resolution is 1680×1050.
- The same as above but with Lenovo branding.
- Three original installs of the Time Zone wallpaper. North American, Europe and Asia variants.
For higher resolution Timezone wallpapers, check out nitrocaster’s recreation. Max resolution is 1920×1080/1200
