Fang Talks

Not finishing projects since 1994.

Sorry folks, but I won’t be reviewing different OS styles if that’s what you’re expecting.

I will tell you though, that Metro sucks balls on desktops and laptops, but that’s besides the point I’m going to make somewhere in this post.
So I changed my wallpaper yesterday, from a pastel light brown to pure black. There’s some typography art in the middle, but that’s not what this is all about. (In before people calling me out to be a hipster or something else for having some cool typography as my wallpaper.)

For some reason, the way dark background makes it hard for me to focus on the window(s) I have open. Yeah, that’s right, I don’t have my browser window fill my entire screen. Why? It’s not necessary, and this way I can have some small things displaying left and right if I need to.
Anyway, I’m not used to the black bars next to my browser window. Sure it looks somewhat similar to the stuff you get when playing old movies with the awesome 4:3 screen ratio, but it just stands out more. In the past two days I often found myself going “…wait, huh? Oh, dark wallpaper”. It just looks a bit out of place is what.

Now y’all probably fill your entire screens with whatever you’re using at the moment, but if you don’t, what parts of your wallpaper are revealed? Or do you have more windows behind it? What kinds of wallpapers do you even use?

Also, if you haven’t already, check yesterday’s post for some mad slash fiction.

    I also always have my windows covering the whole screen no matter what I do. Even if I really love the wallpaper I have set it would probably still distract me while I’m working in a particular programme.
    I agree with Mark, I think you’re just not used to the change :)

    Well I tend to have my browser window or my video player cover the entire screen, and I don’t see why you would want the distraction really. I think you just need to get used to the new wallpaper and it’ll be fine.
