I actually have been digging on the awesome creative commons licensed
photo wallpapers than come with each new version.

I right-click on the Desktop, "Change Desktop Background", then pick
the "Contest" icon (the only with a little clock on it). This is
usually enough to keep me from worrying about changing my background.

As a tech person who runs around between lots of different computers,
I've stopped noticing wallpaper enough to go out of my way to change
it to anything in particular. Great, gradually cycled photography has
worked pretty well for me.
