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. ®
