If any of you guys owned a Zune, you would know that you had the ability to add a background image, which would then be somewhat shaded by the rest of the OS so everything was still easily visible.

I think it would be awesome if a similar concept was brought into WP7, to make the OS even prettier and more personable for each user. Just a thought.

I never owned a Zune (but I'm constantly tempted to get one). Is this as subtle as the background effect in Zune desktop client?

That's what it looks like. There is a slight shade put over the background to make the text visible, but you can still see the background nicely. Just adds a nice touch.

Zune HD not like that

My Zune HD does not look like your screen anymore. I dont see the option to add a background anymore, but if you scroll to the left from your screen do you have all the history, pins, and new?

On the Zune? No.

I haven't gotten the chance to mess around with the ZuneHD at all, but I know that one of the big selling points of the Zune "Classics" was the ability to add a background image, since the Ipod Classic doesn't have that ability.
