The story behind the wallpaper we’ll never forget

Here’s the story about the picture we’ve all have seen and probably never will forget. Even if you’re a Mac-guy like me you’ve probably seen and used a XP-machine over and over again in your school- or work environment and seen this picture. Quite an amazing little story about it – Enjoy!

From today on (April 8 2014) Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP. The one thing everybody will always remember of Windows XP is desktop image ‘Bliss’, with it’s green rolling hills and bluer than blue sky. Doesn’t the most viewed picture of all times asks for a worthy goodbye? We certainly think so! That’s why we hopped on a plane to Los Angeles and went to visit the photographer Charles O’Rear.

He told us the incredible story behind the famous desktop image of Windows XP.
