I usually dislike black or extreme dark colored background but somehow OS X Leopard and its starry theme converted me. Leather background with punch holes and sparky metal Apple logo. Plain version without Apple logo is also available for both single and dual displays.

When I saw this picture of torn paper at iStockphoto, I thought it’s too good not to turn into desktop background so I bought it right away and masked away the background and put this on gradient background. If you would like different color options and/or screen size, I’m willing to do up to two popular ones as I’m pretty busy lately with several projects.
