I was pursing through Paul Thurrott's website, reading old Longhorn previews, when it struck me at how beautiful some of the Longhorn/Vista beta wallpapers were, especially compared to the RTM ones.

I scoured the internet for them, but it seems that no one has a complete set. Some of them are also low-resolution.

So, does anyone have a nice collection of Longhorn/Vista beta wallpapers? If so, it would be much appreciated if anyone could post a link to a gallery or something of that sort.

Oh, thanks, Andy. Much appreciated.

Edit: No, these weren't quite what I was looking for. But thanks for trying anyways.

Anyone else find it kinda sad to see that it still has the old featureset of longhorn posted up there? Before the axing of WinFS et al.

Nice find FiFi. I was going to dig up an old zip I had of the complete collection but I guess that alleviates that need. Nice site overall. There's some neat original stuff on there too.

I had a collection of Microsoft wallpapers during that time. I'll see what I can extract...
