Hidden Windows 7 Wallpapers

Windows 7 comes with a bunch of hidden wallpapers which can be activated by the distributors of the computers on which Windows 7 will be installed. In current versions of the pre-releases, you'll need to perform a little registry hack to unlock the themes, or simply get the ones you like from here.

The extra backgrounds come in themes from 5 countries. It's likely we'll see more countries featured in later versions. (Like where the hell is any Asian country?)

Just would like to note that these wallpapers are not actually "hidden". It just depends on which region you pick when you set up Windows. I've heard of people switching regions in Windows settings just because they prefer different wallpapers, but as I've mentioned before, it can be fixed with a registry hack, or just get the wallpapers from here!

Am I the first to notice that there are a bunch of duplicated? I've checked the folders and Microsoft has actually put duplicate images in. Just pointing it out is all.

Haha, I just noticed that! It seems that picture with the green field and blue flowers is quite popular appearing twice sometimes in one country's set. I guess it's a way to increase the frequency these photos show up in Windows 7's wallpaper rotation.
