Microsoft Releases A Short Documentary About The Windows XP Bliss Wallpaper

“There was absolutely no Photoshop or any editing involved. I live 60 miles north of San Francisco in a wine region of Napa Valley. I took the photograph in an area called Carneros. I took the picture in 1998, when I was driving down to see my then girlfriend Daphne.” You can watch the video below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVXY8OEZAEQ However, as so often happens, the region where the Bliss wallpaper photo was taken is completely different now. So much so that it is impossible to stop and admire the landscape. See for yourself: windows_xp_bliss_today Quiet a drastic change from the original image of some 16 years back. The little 9 minute documentary, on the other hand, is nicely produced, and well worth a watch, for the nostalgia factor alone. As far as the image is concerned, there is little doubt that the photo itself will continue to bring back memories every time someone sees it. It is the very definition of iconic, at least when it comes to computing technology.]]>
