This past week Microsoft has added two more dynamically updated RSS based Windows 7 themes to their collection.

It looks like these two themes are using community submissions from the recent open call for photos that the Microsoft Personalization Gallery started last month.

Since these themes are fed from a regularly updated RSS feed that means anyone can subscribe to the theme and get the backgrounds as well.  The actual theme itself can only be used in Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions.

Terra Dynamic Theme

Exquisite and sometimes haunting landscapes from around the globe are showcased in this free Windows 7 theme. Explore caves, waterfalls, desert, meadows, and beaches through the lens of our community of contributors.
