Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The Windows XP user interface has been described cruelly, and frequently, as the "Teletubbies" UI, but as with much of the rest of WinXP it has a few rough edges which Microsoft will no doubt polish up a tad in some forthcoming service pack. Why wait, though?

ISP and design agency Digital Ink has thoughtfully knocked a groovy piece of wallpaper specifically for those WinXP users who like the Teletubbies UI, but who think it's not anything like full-on enough. We're not suggesting that just changing your wallpaper is going to sort out the whole UI of course, but it may fire you with suffiicient enthusiasm to craft a few more appropriate icons to go with it. This should whet your appetite:

Having cast our eyes over the wallpaper, we couldn't help noticing that there might just be a small chance of a company, a person or two maybe thinking they might own some of the bits. So although we thought it was a great pice of wallpaper we bravely suggested Digital Ink host the download themselves. Note the 'please don't shoot' message down at the bottom. ®
