To wrap up a week of high speed tech events Microsoft has let us know about five new Windows 7 themes to refresh our desktops and maybe even our outlooks.
In the collection there are two new dynamically fed RSS themes which get updated on a fairly regular basis when new photos are dropped in their respective RSS feeds.
Here is a sampling from the initial 30 pictures of the collection – all the shots from Italy where I lived for 18 years! There are three shots from the Naples area – two of Mt. Vesuvius and one of San Paulo the Naples Soccer Stadium.
You can also just get all the pictures by subscribing to the RSS feed – http://themeserver.microsoft.com/default.aspx?p=Bing&c=Aerial_Imagery_of_Europe&m=en-gb
The second dynamic theme in this group is just for all those little folks that creep, crawl and fly around the garden.
Here is the RSS link if you want to subscribe to it seperately – http://themeserver.microsoft.com/default.aspx?p=Windows&c=Insects&m=en-US
The other three themes are static and do not get additional pictures added to them routinely.
Here are eight of the included images.
These photos are a collection by Hayley Elizabeth who responded to the open call for theme photography and was asked to put together an entire theme.
The Chinese Year of the Dragon begins on 23 January and this theme celebrates that with some superb dragon imagery.
