One of the things I like Ubuntu is that it bundles high quality wallpapers with each new version of the operating system, just like Windows does. For their 13.04 version, Canonical has organized a wallpapers contest which received some amazing entries. Therefore, Ubuntu 13.04 has some of the best wallpapers out there. That's why I decided to pack them in a theme for Windows 7 and Windows 8, so that Windows users can also enjoy them. It looks great and you must try it out.
