Some people just aren't into cute kittens or grand views of Mother Nature, at least when it comes to their computers. Sure, themes like those are pretty to look at--but they can be distracting when you're trying to get work done. If you want a simple desktop background that shows off your geek cred and impeccable sense of style, then load up Saif Sajid's Circuit.

Circuit puts a simplified artist's rendition of a computer circuit board on your Windows desktop. It's a clever idea, and well executed.

The wallpaper's background is black, and the graphics are in a light aqua. The overall effect is very modern and hip, yet not too busy. The effect is especially nice if you make your windows borders transparent.

Circuit comes to us courtesy of the Simple Desktops website, which features wallpapers that are beautifully designed, yet not overly complicated.

Note: To load this wallpaper, just download the file and right-click it, then select Set as desktop background. If your browser opens the image automatically, right-click the page itself and select Set As Desktop Background (your browser may use different wording).
