Strech will make it look distorted.

Ah well they're all multiples of each other. If someone on wide screen wanted to do it, it wouldn't work, and vice versa if the wallpaper was wide screen but the monitor wasn't. I should look more clearly shouldn't I, lol.

For laptops, 1440x900. (Mine is 1680x1050)

For desktop LCD screens, I'm not exactly sure. Usually depends on the size of screen.

A lot of desktops have resolutions as high as 1920x1200, and laptops sometimes have 1440x900, 1280x1024 and a lot of other sizes. In general make your desktops at a high 4:3 og 5:4 resolution and crop it for 16:10.
Let's sperg about hardware
E6410 - i5-560m, 8GB, WXGA+, NVS 3100M, Samsung SSD 830 128GB, WWAN, 9-cell, E-Port Plus Replicator
Desktop - i5-2500k (4.3 GHz TB), 8 GB, HD6950 2GB, 2x24" 1080p, Samsung SSD 830 128GB + 2 TB stripe, Xonar D2X

Make some for Whistler/NT5/NT4/Chicago/Memphis/Millennium/Neptune and so on.

A great idea, not only longhorn but all others.
