macOS 14 wallpaper looks like that of Windows XP

Apple at the annual event WWDC 2023 held yesterday, announced new versions of iOS, iPadOS and macOS. At the event, Apple announced the latest version of its desktop operating system, macOS 14, dubbed “Sonoma”.

For those who don't know, Apple names its new macOS after mountains. With macOS Sonoma, Apple seems to be keeping the tradition going.

In this case, Sonoma is a county in California, United States. The default wallpaper of macOS 14 is the mountains of the county, which resembles the highly acclaimed Windows XP wallpaper, also known as “Bliss”.

Set against the majestic natural beauty of Sonoma County, the new wallpaper mimics the aesthetic of the Bliss background.

Of course, Apple didn't discuss how the new wallpaper looks like Windows XP Bliss. While the resemblance may be overlooked, the geographic proximity between Sonoma and Napa County, where the original Bliss photo was taken, adds an interesting angle to this design choice.

The new macOS 14 default wallpaper is an animated image of a mountainous environment with green valleys and a colorful sky. On the other hand, Windows XP Bliss, captured by renowned photographer Charles O'Rear in Napa Valley, depicts lush green hills under a sunny blue sky.

This has long been a symbol of the Microsoft Windows line, particularly for Windows XP users around the world. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
