One of the most seen pictures of all time is the Microsoft Windows XP Desktop Background. If you’ve never seen the image, it is a rolling green hill landscape with a perfect light blue sunny sky that has sparse white fluffy clouds.

Microsoft recently announced that its products will no longer support its Windows XP operating system that was popularly used for the past decade by home-owners, businesses, libraries and schools. In collaboration with the announcement, the tech-giant company released a short eight-minute documentary on how exactly the background came to be. The video explains everything from where the photo was taken in Napa Valley, to the man who snapped the shot, to if it was digitally altered.
