  9. Andy says:

    I just loaded the wallpaper. Now I finally got the new Dock/Exposé-Feature!

  10. darrell says:

    I didn’t think it was worth my $7 so I illegally downloaded this wallaper off bittorent.

  11. Tice says:

    I can’t use it, I got a PPC. 🙁

  12. Lucion says:

    Be careful, this thing totally trashed my system. It went into the endless reboot loop after I set this as my desktop. Thank goodness for Time Machine.

    I knew I should have done the “save as” from direct link rather than opening the picture then clicking on it to save to my desktop. This is why I usually wait to apply these until the kinks are ironed out.

  13. Necu Hocu says:

    Holly F**k! This wallpaper turned my OS X into Windows. What a downgrade! And not just any Windows, but shitty Vista! I want my money back, like right now! 🙂

  14. Hooner says:

    This wallpaper not only sped up my computer, it cured by ED. It’s better than Viagra!

  15. Traci says:

    I downloaded it and lost 5 lbs!

  16. Sammy Love says:

    Sorry, not too good with the jokes but, did it really make your mac run faster? I don’t understand how.

  17. Leon says:

    I’m wondering if you can also post the Snow Leopard server wallpaper, to see if it speeds up my G4 server also….


  18. Khan says:

    This wallpaper downgraded my hdd to sata 1.5

  19. Marco says:

    I downloaded this wallpaper from my HP tower and now I can boot to OS X and Win XP!!! sweet!!!

  20. MiGS says:

    I just made this the background of my WindowsXP machine and suddenly it no longer sucks.

    (5 sec delay…)

    Oh wait. It still sucks.

  21. Agos says:

    Thanks, that fixed the faulty battery that was giving me some issues. Also, it repaired permissions for me!

  22. A says:


    When I enabled white-on-black on this wallpaper a wormhole opened!!!!

  23. Trilock says:

    uhm.. you guys are crazy the wallpaper didn’t do anything for me… except DOUBLE MY RAM!!!??? WTF awesome apple!! when i run the latest snow leopard build the ram goes away though…

  24. pjm says:

    Ah, you idiots: what do you expect when you fail to verify disk permissions before installing the new wallpaper, and then verify disk permissions again afterward?

    I do this both before and after opening anything, and I’ve *never* had my machine fail to open the file in the middle(*). Live and learn. Atom.

    (*) It does get a tiny bit annoying when you have closed one file, verified disk permissions, and then want to open another immediately. But I do it anyway. IT HAS NEVER FAILED ME!

    They really needed to do something to get rid of the “God’s fart” look of the old wallpaper.

  29. iChineseGuy says:

    After installing this wallpaper on my vista, (with all the secret instructions i got here) my PC became a Mac the next day. The best thing is, the minute i log online to the internet, the snow lopard wallpaper even got $500,000 wired into my bank account from Apple Inc.

    Thanks for the tips! This really rocks!!!

  30. Mac Hoe says:

    Funny this is.. this wall paper doesn’t do anything to my iMac..

  31. Christian Meredith says:

    I tried to change my background to this, but it appears that Snow Leopard’s default wallpaper is no match for Haruhi Suzumiya.

  32. Internet 7 says:

    Wallpapers will only speed up your computer if it came with some kind of hidden program that is supposed to do all kinds of fixes.

  33. Hedi says:

    P.S. Where are the ones with the cats?

  43. Jake says:

    I just added this wallpaper to my Dell and Steve Jobs rose from the floor, threw out my Dell and placed a shiny new Mac Book Pro on my desk. Steve, you are a life saver. Thanks.

    PS. Sorry Lauren from the Windows commercial. I am cool enough to have a mac.

  44. Gorgonzola says:

    I installed this wall paper to my Windows PC and it started oscillating between leopard and snow leopard auroras. Then I blacked out. When I came to there before me was a shiny new Macbook Pro with Snow Leopard OS X!!! MAC FTW… No seriously!

  45. Gee thanks Doc, the damn wallpaper did nothing for my com.
