I had some thoughts a while back, when I was searching for some, about what would make good wallpapers:
Keep in mind that applications will usually fill the center of the screen, so the content should sort of be distributed across the image.
Perhaps something abstract with atom-ish shapes placed about. Just a thought.

The clashing is not as bad as you might think since there are 4 main color palettes. The Reactos colors and purple fall under the "winter" palette.
Most of the colors in XP can be changed, and even some not in the control panel (like the logon prompt background). In 98, you could even change the crash screen, and mine gave the MSOD ("magenta screen of death") instead of the BSOD.

Pesho expressed disagreement with your design, first in a simple manner and then in a more detailed and stronger manner. The level of language is no more than what you'd likely see if a core developer decided to comment.

The "sticks" texture is fine, I'd only recommend making the logo smaller so that there can be at least two columns of icons on the left without interfering with the logo.
