Microsoft Went All Out for Its Windows 10 Desktop Background

When Windows 10 launches on July 29, pay special attention to the default desktop background. Microsoft partnered with San Francisco designer Bradley G. Munkowitz, whose worked on films such as Tron, to create a spectacle out of the desktop background. Microsoft used lights, projectors, camera mapping and even a fog machine to create a 3D-looking Windows 10 logo. It's quite a departure from the rolling hills landscape of Windows XP's iconic background.
