FWIW, desktop icons seem to have a somewhat difficult time standing
out on any of these backgrounds, and the desktop icon labels even more
so.  The darkness of the screen1 version makes this problem less
severe.  The screen2 version, with a less dense pattern, might work
better if it was made darker.  Same with screen3, only you might want
to lower the contrast as well.
