I looked at the all and predicted the one you would choose. The icy scene one.

I hate it.

The great thing about Google for me is that there's no fancy imagery - it's just half a dozen things on a page, and it takes next to no time to load.

I'm not sure if there's an option for "Please put it back like it was."

Edit to add:
OK, looks like I'm not the only one, and looks like I'm stuck with it until Friday. Everyone's being forced to have an image until Friday and then you can click on "Remove Background image" if you want to.

While I think the picture is pretty (and intriguing - is it a pointy-hatted giant made out of ladders and slides?) I can see your point.
Plenty of people who aren't internet savvy will be expecting the simple white page. They may think they've stumbled onto the wrong thing.
At least the results page is the same though. That would just be messy with a background.

I agree.. it takes too long to load a page and serves no purpose other than to make it look like bing, which I never liked the look of... I liked the plain backdrop with the logo relevant to the special day thing, which seems to be missing in this version.

Not impressed. It's supposed to be inspirational. Well it inspired me to try Bing (which is rubbish, unfortunately).

Seems to me to be a blatent attempt to get folk to get a google account in order to turn it off (or to see if they can turn it off).

It's become the spawn of Bing.
