Big changes are happening to Chrome OS – Google’s Linux-based ‘web only’ operating system.

The most surprising of these is the introduction of a ‘desktop’ and window manager called Aura: –

Now of course, you can’t have a desktop without some desktop wallpapers. To that end 50 wallpapers have been made available in the Chromium OS builds. All of the images are photographic, hi-resolution, and predominantly nature-based.

From cuddly foxes, kissing beavers, and families of deer, to washing hippos, spying alligator and creepy close-ups of insects; autumnal forests, baren tundras, glacial vistas, and the embered glow of sunsets – there is a lot of high-resolution choice to choose from.

Now chances are you’re not running Chromium OS (and don’t intend to) but you want the wallpapers anyway.

Good news – hit the download button below to grab them all.

Edit: It’s currently unclear as to what license the wallpapers are under, however it’s likely that, as with Android’s wallpapers, they are subject to some form of open license.
