People use wall papers much more than they used it. There was a time when a computer wall papers might have been a luxury. But now, having desktop wall papers is just common sense. Of course, back in the day, when Apple Computer was still referred to by many people as MacIntosh, instead of Mac, computers were too expensive for many people to afford and they did much less. The wall paper in such computers, which were mostly glorified typewriters, was just a gray screen background. And, when it said gray screen, it meant a lot of black and white dots bunched together, sometimes closer so that it could achieve a darker shade of gray.
Today, there are all kinds of computer wall papers that people can choose as their backgrounds. In fact, people can customize wall paper to make it reflect their unique interests and personalities. Some people might choose to insert a picture of themselves on a family vacation. Some might want a photo of the kids to be the baseline for all of their activities on their computer. And others might want to have their favorite pop artist, or otherwise their favorite band, displayed on their screen every morning.
All of this is to say that, when it comes to wall papers, people have a lot of choices. But, in spite of the fact that, in just around twenty years, people have been able to completely reoriented their computers in such a way that these computers can display just about anything, much of this change has been invisible, in the sense that people have not yet realized how significant the change in screen graphic design has been during the past two decades. Wall papers are one of the most apparent signs of the way that computer screens have changed, for the better, in the course of many people’s lifetimes. People can still get a sense of this. All they need to do, when they look at their wall papers, is take a closer look.
