Thanks to CTOnews.com netizens Wu Yanzu in South China for the delivery of clues! CTOnews.com, November 29 (Xinhua)-- Microsoft today announced that the Windows ugly sweater for 2023, Bliss wallpaper based on the classic WinXP system, is now on limited sale at a price of $75 (CTOnews.com Note: currently about 537 yuan), and the proceeds will be donated to the Nature Conservancy.

Windows ugly sweater is an annual Microsoft tradition, and every year it launches an ugly Windows-themed sweater with a big eye clip last year and a drawing tool the year before last.

Bliss wallpaper is a classic blue sky, white clouds and green grass. Because WinXP is popular all over the world, it is considered by many people to be the most viewed photo in the world.

The photo was taken by photographer Charles O'Rear in 1996, and Microsoft bought the rights to it for "less than six figures" in 2000.

CTOnews.com reported in June this year that Microsoft design team Jen Gentleman tweeted a new version of Bliss wallpaper, a new interpretation of the famous Windows XP classic "Blue Sky, White Cloud and Green Grass" wallpaper.

The wallpaper is available in a 4K version with a resolution of 4089 x 2726. Compared to the 4:3 ratio of the original wallpaper, the new wallpaper is 3:2 and adapts to the current Microsoft Surface range.

Microsoft said that the theme of this year's ugly sweater is Bliss, and all the proceeds will be donated to organizations dedicated to "protecting all the land and waters on which life depends."

This year's ugly sweaters are available in a limited edition directly on Xbox Gear Shop. The company will also hold a live event at 9 a. M. Pacific time, when it will show more information about sweater design.
