     So, looking at the fourth picture, does this mean that the next big OS from Apple will be elephant? That would be pretty huge haha

  • lkahney

    @muhaidib:disqus well, they are running out of cat names… 

  • Barelyabsolut

    He’s not a feline… so he’s out. Sorry Mac OS Elephant. 

  • Gavin Ash

     Can these be shared at their full res?  I’d love to set them as my wall! :D

  • Chris Slaughter

     Is there anywhere we can download the high res images of all of these?

    @muhaidib:disqus – He’s not actually an elephant, but a hybrid of a an elephant and a rhinoceros. That means that the next version of the OS will be OS X Elephino.

    Thanks for posting this alternate download link!  Really beautiful.

  • Orkut Scraps

    Very good wallpapers. :)

  • Jmarchiando

     What’s with all the fog and clouds?  Seems like a dreary, dark and someone surreal atmosphere, which appears to be very Apple-unlike, IMHO.

    Anybody else see that as a bit overdone?

  • Jmarchiando

    Somewhat not someone…need more coffee this AM!

  • LoFiSamurai

    Don’t get me wrong, these photos are gorgeous, but they look like google image search results. Nothing unique or Apple about them.

     Looks slightly Windows ‘ish’ all thats missing is bliss hill

    @lkahney:disqus, there are plenty of other cat names out there!  Cheetah, Cougar, Jaguar, Lynx, Ocelot, just to name a few.

  • ivan_b

    Wow, amazing images. On Lion I wouldn’t have to worry about searching for new wallpapers for quite a while.

  • rsfinn

    Cheetah was the code name for Mac OS X 10.0 (although not used as a marketing name), and of course Jaguar was the marketing name for 10.2.

    Cougar and Lynx have already been trademarked by Apple.  

  • Dilbert A

    agreed, disappointed if these are all that ship.

    it’s not that a huge deal or anything, as there are plenty of desktop sites to download from, however there doesn’t seem to have been much effort put forth here.

    here’s hopping they’re limited because it’s a preview. 

  • Davidoff

     The last one is awesome… but i prefer darker wallpapers

  • Jack Hickman

    Thanks!

  • Arham Maher

     Agree aswell! 
    whats up with all the nature look! 

    i like the Loin wallpaper, but thats it.

    im i the only one who thinks this loin update is quit bizzar.. nothing like the last OS versions have been (expect for snow leopard thou) nothing truly stands out in lion

  • Antony D

    What is it with people and wallpaper on their computers. I work part time fixing computers for a store and some of the images are just so bad. Flowers and trees etc on yours desktop you start to loose you icons. I like the blue set of the MAC. The one MAC one that really gets up my nose is that Horrid standard Purple thing with the stars or what ever in it. How can Apple let some so gross on their wonderful machines. Well that’s my gripe for tonight. Goodnight all

  • Curious7

     Actually some if not all of these pictures are taken from the screen saver in AppleTV.

  • Rushir Parikh

     The link doesnt work for me…

  • Ndgreenaway

     Im waiting to see a killer feature..but at the moment it feels like the ios update..tinkering and a bit of eye candy..its maybe testament how good leopard was (s.leopard was update to that not full new system i presume) that its given them the problem of how to better it….but we will wait and see..also i think the Windows 7 Wallpapers were far more unique id like to see something that will surprise me.

  • pangeomedia

     Apple doesn’t call them ‘wallpaper.’ They’re desktop pictures. Long time Mac users know that. Switchers from Windows don’t.

  • CalicoAvenger

    I am still holding out hope for Cat (ie Felis Domesticus)

  • kelvin_chen28

    yeah it was nice beauty of naturals……to see the wallpaper…..thank you….http://http://www.themovie.ws
