The Funny Thing

Filed under: Slight off-topic — Tags: , , — Andrew Zhilin @ 04:10

Hello everybody.

Very funny and confusing thing happened yesterday. Thanks to Flatfeet comment in my previous post bout my Mer contribution (which got unprecedented attention from the Community, I really can see that I’ve made right decision to work with Mer guys) it appeared that my wallpaper looks similar to upcoming Windows 7 wallpaper, which I haven’t actually seen until today :) At first I felt very confused and sad cause I’ve started to look like cheap copycat to some Windows stuff. But then I’ve finally googled that wallpaper and the result you can see below:


Somehow it reminds me some ad about modern HD TV, like “before/after”.

And if there are people, I think there aren’t but still, that think that I’m such a dumbass to copycat windows wallpaper and then claim that it was made by myself – I can’t help you :)

P.S.: I’m still contributing to Mer cause it’s awesome to work with such great guys :)



  1. I noticed the similarity too, but couldn’t recall where I did see that wallpaper before.
    Anyway I eventually installed it yesterday evening, but I would never (intentionally or unintentionally) install something Windows-remembering on my N810.

    Thus, I believe you :)
