Make Vista look like Leopard w/grass background

Posted in Windows Vista by Steve Sinchak

At WWDC 2007 Steve Jobs previewed Mac OS X Leopard with a new background image that looked very similar to backgrounds used in the Windows Vista beta.  This lead many testers to wonder why Apple picked a background almost identical to what Microsoft used in Windows Vista just years after the famous, “Redmond, start your photocopiers” campaign? The move has prompted others to start their own “Cupertino, start your copiers” slogans.

Setting the differences or similarities between Windows Vista and Mac OS X Leopard aside, the background looks very nice through the glass windows of Windows Vista. Thanks to a user that posted the full resolution background image on Flickr, you too can experience the OS X Leopard or Vista beta look on your system.
