Thumbs up desktop backgrounds

Does anyone know any sites where you can get free desktop backgrounds from cos all the xp ones are boring now.
Thanks.

Make your own. Use a camera and snap a picture of what you think might be a cool shot and then upload it either by scanner or program then right click it and set it as desktop. Really pretty simple.

this was pretty cool...they dance to your music you play.
but google has loads of them listed all for free

http://www.themexp.org/ - Not just wallpapers, but cool stuff like windows xp styles. What xp styles do, is they modify (in a way) your overall theme, so you can emulate (for example) OS panther skins.
