The mythical hill of Windows XP is unrecognizable almost 30 years later: this is how it has changed

Everyone is familiar with the most legendary Windows XP wallpaper, known as “Bliss.” It is possible that many users changed it, but the green hill under the blue sky accompanied many users in a time that seems somewhat distant. It is true that some old equipment still proudly displays that image of nature, an image that represents a real place, but that was taken more than two decades ago. Time passes for everyone, including landscapes, which can suffer alterations, whether due to the influence of people or other causes. In this specific case, it seems that the hand of the human being has had something to do with it in the matter.

The hill is full of vineyards

The photograph was taken by National Geographic photographer Charles O’Rear 28 years ago, in 1996. Windows took over the rights and was able to use it in its operating system, although it has not been recovered for later versions. The area, located in California, United States, belongs to the Napa Valley. The influencer Andrew Levitt has gone to the place and recorded a video, which demonstrates the profound changes that the landscape has suffered. And the color of the hill is no longer pure green, but rather brownish. Vineyards have been harvested, which has altered the appearance of the hill.

According to the youtuber, the change is so noticeable that I wouldn’t have found the place if it weren’t for Google Maps.. Later, he commented that there is no way to take the same photo as the wallpaper: “I don’t see the wallpaper at all,” she added. “I wouldn’t use this as a background, that’s clear.” Of course, the influencer went to Washington to try to recreate it somewhere else.

Windows XP is already a relic of the past. They followed Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10 and 11. Windows 12 has not yet been introduced.
