10.7: Use the Linen pattern on the desktop
Authored by: jpalm1977 on Oct 12, '11 06:17:01AM
Great stuff! I'm graphic designer so I did this a couple o' months back for exactly the same reasons :-)

Only, I used the slightly lighter version of the Linen background found here:

/System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/Versions/C/Resources/NSLinenBackgroundPattern.png

I found that it creates less contrast between the bright OS windows and the Desktop, thus reducing eye strain. Looks quite radical when you enter 'Mission Control' too!

It does, however, remind of of those nasty little tillable backgrounds from the bad ol' days of Mac OS 8.

What a trip!
