I wasn't sure if I'd like how this one looked on my little laptop screen. My fears were completely unfounded. It's a fantastic wallpaper. Thank you!

Perhaps I shouldn't admit this but...this is my favorite of all the wallpapers we have offered. I think, since it my job to look at art all day, this more "designy" wallpaper doesn't compete with what I need to be doing and sits better in the background while still looking authoritative. And I just love the ship the more I look at it. Still, it'll be nice t see the ole' (futuristic) Stubbs back, November 1st!

Authoritative indeed describes it perfectly. After almost a day watching it readying to take off my screen whenever i change between windows it always catches the eye :) Is there any chanse to get a similar wallpaper of Future Stubbs too ? I think it would tie in nicely with the post about making H.M.S Stubbington in its different stages ( which i loved by the way )and going back to the original Future-y Stubbs.

Well said. It's visually interesting without making my desktop feel cluttered or too busy. I like the other wallpapers as art, but I like this one as art and as a wallpaper.

No love for the 1280x800 laptop (MacBook) crowd, sadly, but I'll figure out something. Awesome design.

Ah, the 1680x1050 gives the same proportions! All is good! Thanks!
