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.

It is the very definition of iconic, at least when it comes to computing technology.]]>
