I am very particular about my desktop wallpaper or background. It has to be a neutral color, be interesting yet not overpowering, and be just the right amount of brightness so it doesn’t startle in the dark of night. Oh, and it needs to be the appropriate resolution for the monitor so it doesn’t look fuzzy or pixelated.

The default wallpaper and it’s slate counterpart from Mac OS X Tiger, released way back in 2005, has always been a favorite. Today I found a 6K (let’s go with very high resolution) version in a bluish-slate color that I find absolutely delightful. It’s available for iPhone, iPad, and computers. This is especially important because I like all my devices to match.

I can see me using the version for a long time.
