Default background ftw? Also, just an FYI, I'm running Windows 8 with the "Snowy v2.0" theme which you can find on DeviantArt (makes Windows 8 look so much better, especially the close, minimize, maximize buttons and the colors). Also yes, I hid the icons on my desktop because its a mess.
I'll also throw in my Tiles Menu for good measure.
Note the Steam, Firefox, Skype, Visual Studio, Origin and Office icons. I used OblyTile to achieve that effect since the default tiles/icons aren't very visually appealing.
